HFD Special Operations


The Rescue One program began in 1992

Rescue One responds to incidents requiring heavy, specialized and/ or technical rescue such as structural collapses, trench rescues, confined space rescues, high/low angle rescues, or heavy vehicle extrications.

The Rescue One Unit is part of Pennsylvania Task Force One (PA-TF1) , a designated Urban Search and Rescue Team under FEMA, making it one of the premier firefighting and rescue operations in the state and nation.. Only 28 such teams exist nationwide and each is available for mobilization in response to any national emergency. The 80-member unit has received more than 300 hours of advanced technical training and was one of the first units to respond to the terrorist attacks in New York City on September 11, 2001.
