What a Tram Rescue Looks Like

You’re 240 feet over the East River in New York City and the Roosevelt Island Tram just stops. First, the good news: The gondola car is not hurtling through the air. The last thing I want during my evening commute is an aviation accident. But what did the rescue look like?
Naturally, Portland will have all this same equipment ready to go and a tram emergency crew ready to respond just like in New York. Of course they will. If there’s one thing we’ve learned about this city council it’s that they think of everything. They don’t just get caught up in the rosy scenarios presented to them. No, they ponder what could go wrong and prepare for every contingency. That is what great leadership is all about. In fact they can probably tell us who’s building the emergency retrieval vehicle. Right, guys?
Here's one of the tram riders enjoying the lovely views.

Guess what--you're right! Portland HAS prepared its emergency services for a tram accident. Aren't you glad you asked, and didn't just assume?
