Attend the first-ever Aerial Rescue Symposium this spring


You are invited to the first ever Aerial Rescue Symposium in Southfield, Michigan, happening April 30 - May 1!

TCIA partnered with the Michigan Green Industry Association (MGIA); Dr. John Ball; Christopher Stimson, RN, CEN and other emergency rescue/emergency room trauma professionals to build this exclusive event.

The goal of this event is to bring together all the key parties – tree workers, arborist trainers, fire/rescue professionals, emergency medical technicians and physicians from across America – to develop a basic framework on how to work together toward the common goal of rescuing injured tree workers from canopies.

The symposium is limited to 40 participants due to the symposium's intense agenda and to keep the participation level high. As a result, we expect this symposium to fill up quickly. Please sign up as soon as possible to reserve your spot, once we hit 40 attendees, workshop registration will close.

Reserve your spot today and be on the frontlines of the future of aerial rescue. Register now.
