Fire brigade turn up. (I can nearly see my station out of my office window)
Push Talle up against a wall. (ABTT method or otherwise)
Lean ladder against Talle.
'fireman's lift' the casualty down the ladder.
Although never from a Talle, I cannot count the times I have seen this particular rescue method used with my very own eyes. Indeed, I would say that it is harder to do this from a window in a burning room than a relatively open cage (for us) about 5m in the air.
(My father is a retired fire officer and retired fire/H+S consultant, so I have been to my fair share of open days)
I'm with Ramdram on this one...I can't see how the HSE cannot accept that this is reasonably practicable for our organisation. Along side all the effort put into to reducing the likelihood of rescue being required in the first place.
