The Medic: Vertical Rescue 2020

Saturday, February 1, 2020, 9:30 AM

The Medic: Vertical Rescue Many emergency first aid skills can be forgotten if you don’t use them on a regular basis.  In the panic of an emergency, it is easy to forget the techniques and when you should use a certain method to help someone who is injured. This is a 4-hour hands on workshop where we will discuss and practice vertical rescue skills and techniques.  Would you know what to do if you found an injured hiker off a trail with no higher care options? What steps could you take to maintain safety for yourself and others in a post disaster scenario?    We will spend time discussing how to become familiar with the gear and basics of vertical rescue before practicing introduction techniques in a controlled environment. Learning many rescue techniques can help you become an asset to a medic team or community, in a post-disaster situation or where someone’s life is in danger with no higher care options available. We will cover: Rescue and climbing knots Vertical rescue concepts Essential equipment How to work with minimal gear Safety and precautions An introduction to rapelling Patient extrication CLASS INFORMATION Dates: February 1st, 2020. 9:30am - 1:30pm Location: Directions will be emailed to all registered students prior to the workshop.
