KVFC & Guilford Professional Firefighters Rescue Dog on Cliff

By KVFC & Guilford Professional Firefighters.

(December 19, 2022)—Busy day for D-Shift yesterday. Guilford Professional Firefighters responded for mutual aid to the town of Killingworth for assistance with a high angle rope rescue.

Guilford Professional Firefighters are specially trained in many specialized emergency capabilities including high angle rescue. A report of a hiker and their dog slid off a 40 foot cliff and the dog was stranded on a small ledge halfway down the cliff.

Killingworth Fire Department was in the scene and special called Guilford Professional Firefighters to respond. Upon their arrival they set up a special rope system to reach the dog and performed a rescue to lower the dog safely to the ground.
