Emergency Response

Medical Considerations for Technical Rope Rescue

Course Summary

Rope rescue meets medical

This one day clinic was designed to bridge the gap between technical rope rescue and medical training. Too often teams separate their rope rescue and medical training and don’t get the chance to practice their patient care in a technical environment. This high level clinic will provide an opportunity to put these skills together during technical rope scenarios with simulated patients who require medical care. From harness trauma to hip injuries to hypothermia. This course is entirely field-based with no in-class delivery.

TESTIMONIALS

We really couldn't have asked for more in a two week period - the amount and quality of training we received was like nothing I've seen before. I have been going on training trips usually twice a month for the last 4 years and this was by far the best I have been to.
