Very rarely am I more than 2 or 3 stories off the ground. However, whether it is 3 stories or 30, I'd rather have a shot at escaping than burn/suffocate/freeze/etc. Should the need arise, it'd be nice to have the option to rappel out/down. How does someone get started with that skill? Are there rigs made for beginners to give someone the ability to rappel with little or no skill? I'm thinking something like a harness, ropes, and maybe some handles that attach to the rope to automatically control the speed of decent. I don't know maybe I'm off on what technology can do. Please share your thoughts on the subject. Thanks -Emt1581 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
