Wind Turbine Access for Emergency Responders (WTAFER)

The Wind Turbine Access for Emergency Responders (WTAFER) course is for members of the rescue services who may need to perform a rescue at a wind turbine. Wind turbines pose some special challenges: they are often in rural areas and/or are difficult to reach. Those working on wind turbines may be in potentially confined spaces, where a rescue is a challenging task for fire and rescue services and other emergency responders.

Due to its international relationships, where instructors face these challenges from different perspectives (safe working, fire and rescue), Rescue 3 Europe has developed the Wind Turbine Access for Emergency Responders course to help organisations maintain high safety standards at all times. Rescue 3 Europe provides an agreed international certified training program to their training providers and instructors, to help them provide up to date information in this rapidly growing market of renewable energy.
