My employer relies on external (public, or host-employer) rescue teams
whenever we can. We usually find one. We probably provide our own rescuers
about 15% of the time. 

Even when we are not the rescuers, I require a tripod and harness for most
entries where non-entry rescue would work. It's dumb to count on rescuers
when the attendant has only to crank the winch. 

Stay healthy,
