Orientation to Cave Rescue @ GSP
April 21 - April 22
About the seminar:
This is an introduction to cave rescue. Topics covered include Incident Command System and how it applies to cave rescues, medical management, hypothermia, patient packaging, extreme situations, the cave environment, communications, media interaction, search, and more. There will be both classroom and hands on instruction, and the students will run a mock incident.
There are no prerequisites for this class. This is designed for anyone who has an interest in cave rescue management and operations. Both recreational cavers and emergency response personnel will benefit from this class.
Those under 18 will need to call the seminar coordinator to make prior arrangements to attend if not accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The seminar cost is $50 for NSS and $60 for non-NSS members. All seminar instructors are volunteers to help keep costs low.
