Itinerary:

Note: This practice is not led by a certified instructor and is not a substitute for AST1. Everyone is encouraged to actively participate. Only sign up if you have completed AST1 or better.

The exact location will be determined closer to the date of the session.

The rough agenda is:

1) Review rescue equipment, and proper technique for searching, propping and digging.

2) Split into groups and practice single and multiple burial searches and rescues.

This session will be cancelled is it raining heavily or if the roads to the mountains are hazardous.
