Resource and Industry

Ice

We provide one level of training regardless of whether you work over flat water (frozen lakes and ponds), or over moving water (frozen creeks and rivers) because the baseline skills and knowledge are the same for both.

However, ice over moving water increases the risk exponentially and we recommend that personnel working on frozen creeks or rivers also take swiftwater rescue training.

The standard-of-care for those working in this high risk environment is a minimum of 16 hours of training that combines theoretical and practical knowledge.

EQUIPMENT

Scarab Rescue Tool

The Scarab® represents five years of research and testing by Rick Lipke and the design team at Conterra. It was born out of the need for a small, simple device that could easily control heavy rescue loads, as well as excel at pick offs, twin rope systems and other general rescue techniques. The Scarab® does all this and more.

What a great course you and your crew put on for us – as a greenhorn, I expected to learn a lot, and I did. Your instructors did an excellent job catering to every skill level, were extremely knowledgeable, and I walked away with a lot more confidence!
