SFD Provides Rappelling Demo to Local Elementary Students
Thursday, October 2, 2014

SFD members went to E Salisbury Elementary today to provide a rappelling demonstration to students who have been reading the book "Cliffhanger."  Students learned vocabulary words relating to climbing and the crew provided verbal explanations of certain vocabulary words, as well as visual representations.  For the children, the most exciting portion was when Acting Lt Haines was raised high into the air to perform the actual rappelling!  It was a great opportuity for the children to actually see what they had read about, as well as an excellent opportunity for the crew to practice rigging and rappelling principles in a controlled environment.
