Rescue training in Lebanon

  • Arborist Pepé Ramirez, center, ascends into a tree to assist his colleague Scott Davis, right, during a training for firefighters from the Lebanon and Hanover fire departments on how to rescue arborists at Colburn Park in Lebanon, N.H., on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021. Travis Vickerson, assistant district manager with Davey Tree Expert Company, which acquired Chippers, Inc. in March, said that training first responders to assist arborists in distress is important because the tree service industry has a high rate of injury and accidental death. “On any given day I have 40 guys out in the field and I want to make sure they go home safe to their families,” he said.
