The Georgetown Fire Department maintains the Technical Rescue Team to ensure the safety of the citizens of Georgetown and all of Williamson County. With capabilities extending outside the norm, technicians are available to safeguard victims and provide aid to unusual rescue situations beyond the capability of an average fire department response. This team extends capabilities of fire and medical first response to high angle, trench/excavation, heavy extrication, and confined space rescue.
Team members are cross trained to provide not only firefighting and emergency medical services, but technical rescue as well. In addition to these duties, members have extensive training in advanced rescue techniques. This intense training is performed for expansion of knowledge and preparedness to respond.
This team is one of several regional fire department teams that participate in the Williamson County Technical Rescue Team.
