PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Fire and Rescue's high angle rope rescue team trained at the big grain silo next to the Steel Bridge on Thursday.

The rescue team practiced lowering a person to safety from a high distance. The team said they will often use ropes for security and ladders as ramps.

The Technical Rescue Team would be called out if someone was stuck on Mount Hood, or if someone was trapped in a building.
