From left, Airmen Christopher Zamarron, Ashton Anderson and Brendan Adame, 364th Training Squadron cable and antenna systems apprentice course students, participate in a ground-based tower rescue exercise at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, Oct. 23, 2018. Anderson is playing the role of the victim, while Adame and Zamarron secure him before the ground team lowers him down. Several situations like equipment failure or injury could leave the climber unable to descend the tower on their own. This method is the safest for retrieving someone from the tower because it only puts the person descending at risk. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Pedro Tenorio)
