    TULSA, Okla. - FOX23 spent the day Thursday learning how local rescuers save people using ropes and knots.

    FOX23's Sara Whaley repelled with the Tulsa Fire Department rescue team and members of OKTF-1 at Chandler Park as they were learning skills needed for a high angle rescue situation. 

    Trainers said these skills are vital to know, especially living in Green Country during severe weather season.

    When rescuers know how to use ropes and knots, they can get first responders to people stuck underneath rubble after storms and tornadoes. They said it’s also useful in swift water rescue situations as they can tie ropes to boats and get first responders out to people stuck in flood waters.
