As part of the JROTC curriculum, cadets have several opportunities to rappel. The City of Mobile allows JROTC instructors to use the Firefighters Training facility where cadets learn the safety and physical aspects required to rappel. After extensive safety checks and safety instruction, cadets climb the tower that simulates a 4 storey building. Experienced Army JROTC instructors lead students through the rappelling process.
