The National Guard’s 101st WMD Civil Support Team was able to receive some specialized training on closed system winching from Factor 55 Precision Engineering.
These specialized men and women of our Armed Forces are trained to respond to any type of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear incident—think terrorist hot zones like bomb making chemicals and materials etc.
Recently, Factor 55 was invited to explain the Closed System Winching technique to the group. All of their vehicles are equipped with recovery winches with capacities ranging from 16.5K to the smaller UTV 3.5K winches.
After a classroom and Q&A session, Factory 55 outfitted one of the response vehicles with an UltraHook for field evaluation and provided detail training in its use.
