Confined Space Team

What We Do


The Confined Space Team is assigned to Station 8 (the Danebo Station). Rescue services are provided within the Eugene and Springfield city limits, and in some cases, specially called for by one of our medic units operating outside the cities and in need of the services for personnel safety. Industry and government are required to have a designated confined space rescue team in order to obtain certain confined space entry permits. The department’s Confined Space Team provides this service.

The team consists of personnel deployed on the three shifts. Personnel at the ranks of Captain, Engineer, and Firefighter are DPSST certified as Confined Space Technicians, Technical Rope Rescue Technicians, and certified in Vehicle/Machinery Extrication.
