Cave Rescue Weekend

RAT-SAR hosted our annual cave rescue exercise at Shelta cave in Huntsville, AL. The exercise consisted of rescuing a patient via a vertical raise from a small crevice approximately 30’ below the rigging point, then moving the patient on a horizontal line to another vertical raise, then transitioning to another horizontal line and moving to the final vertical raise out of the cave. The rescue team consisted of 16 rescuers from North Carolina rescue teams and RAT-SAR.
