The purpose of this course is to expose rescuers to the rigors of mountain rescue operations using minimal technical gear. Over the course of two days students will be moving through mountainous terrain, building rescue systems, and working through various technical challenges presented by the terrain and the instructors. This course has no classroom time. Everyone will meet on the morning of the first day and proceed directly to the rescue area of operations and remain in the mountains until the rescue exercises are completed on the final day.
Location: Pisgah National Forest, NC
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the participation in group activities in which social distancing is difficult, if not impossible, is likely to result in the increased chance of exposure to the virus, which may increase the likelihood of contracting the disease. This exposure is possible through direct contact with other people, proximity to other people, and contact with surfaces that other people have had contact with. By participating in the activities, you represent that you do not have reason to believe that you have contracted the disease, have not experienced symptoms of the disease, or have been diagnosed with the disease. By participating in this activity, you represent that you have been informed of these risks and voluntarily assume the risks of potential infection of the disease. You also understand that there is the possibility that you may transmit the disease to others, even if you do not show symptoms of the disease.
