Rappelling on the Square

And there was that one time we rappelled off the Chambersburg Trust building on the square in Chambersburg for Fire Prevention Week. The SAVES (Shippensburg Area Vertical Extrication and Search) Team tied off to the mechanicals on the roof and went over the edge. I remember my one time going over the edge my foot slipped a little on the tin fascia moulding around the roof line. Well, I kicked off a chunk of paint the size of a dollar bill. For years I'd drive by, look up and see the dark scuff. They've since painted the fascia. I still look up sometimes.

Chambersburg Trust Company is the 5 story building on the left.
We were rappelling from right at the left edge of the picture.
