Ice Rescue Technician
Price: $375.00


Item: #20

The most common cause of death among snowmobilers is ... drowning! This course works from the premise that there is no such thing as "safe ice". Learn to identify ice types and formations; the most common problem spots; best access and exit points; and recognize and deal with cold stress and hypothermia. Students will participate in self-rescue drills and rescuing others using various techniques and tools, from the simple to the complex. Students are also taught about the strong cross-over between ice rescue and water rescue. There is also a rope component, which will include simple anchoring systems and mechanical advantage. The requirements for the Ice Rescue Technician portion of NFPA 1670 Standard for surface ice rescue will be met in this course.
