Opening Thoughts on the Why of this course Gear In Use 3 ~ On-site Rescue Introduction Descent Rescue Specific Instructions for Use General Ascent - Access Bolting - Knots - Anchors Carabiner Choice
Examples of Operations: - a team member accesses the victim, unhooks the person, then lowers the victim unaccompanied - a team member accesses the victim, releases him/her, then rappels down with the victim - the victim is suspended on a pre-installed evacuation system that does not require a team member to access him/her directly
Technical specifics: - unaccompanied evacuation can generally be done using a ready-to-use rescue kit - accompanied descent requires proper training, as it implies a mastery of advanced rope access techniques - in all cases, the rescue method should be as rapidly as possible, in order to reduce the risk of suspension trauma, especially when the victim is unconscious
