Mohegan Tribal Fire Department Trains in New Rescue Maneuvers

Nov 16, 2023
Between Jun. 12 and Jun. 28, 2023, the Mohegan Tribal Fire Department trained from Mohegan Sun’s Earth Hotel Tower and Sky Hotel Tower for potential window washer rescues. This type of rescue training is rare in the state as the next closest departments that would be able to assist in these types of rescues would be from larger cities such as New Haven or Hartford, CT. The department is being trained to work in a concerted effort to rescue window washers in an emergency scenario by rappelling down from high-rise buildings, such as our two hotels.
