Rescue units called in to save a dummy


Recommended Posts

CASPER, Wyo. - The response was quick and complete: When a passer-by called Tuesday to report a worker dangling from a Western Area Power Administration tower 150 feet in the air, authorities responded by sending Casper Fire-EMS rescue and command units, two Natrona County sheriff's vehicles, a fire protection district rescue unit and a Life Flight helicopter.

All to rescue a dummy.

Dave Neumayer, district manager for the power company, said the rescue dummy had been suspended from the tower last week as part of a training exercise. Lightning slowed plans to remove the dummy from the tower.

The passer-by couldn't have known that. But Neumayer said the Casper Fire-EMS Department should have known — they participated in the training exercise.

Must have been the "other" shift.....
