Search and Rescue in Splash Spring 2018
When hikers and mountain climbers go missing or get hurt, how do we find and rescue them? Typical emergency response resources (police, fire, EMS) don't have the training to operate in hazardous alpine environments, so searches in the US are mostly conducted by skilled volunteers. This class gives a sample of the techniques used in volunteer search and rescue, from human tracking to helicopter short hauls and technical rope systems.
