Low Angle Ropes Rescue / Slope Evacuation
Rope rescue skills are used in almost all technical rescue disciplines. This two-day entry level class will take the beginner to operations level. For those who have a need for high angle ropes training, this class (15-45 degrees) provides the perfect foundation to build upon.
Not every jurisdiction has the need for high angle ropes, but nearly everyone has a slope that is hard to traverse, including gravel pits, sledding hills, elevated highways, and remote wooded areas.
The morning will be spent in the classroom:
- Patient Handling
The afternoon will be spent on-site for hands-on training:
- Systems—Mechanical Advantages
- Haul Teams/Litter Teams
- Basic Evolutions
Practical: Out on the Slopes
- Raising/Lowering Systems
- Simulated Rescues
- Introduction to Belay Lines
