SMALL PARTY ASSISTED RESCUE a technical seminar presented by the NATIONAL CAVE RESCUE COMMISSION BendRedmond, Oregon September 19 thru September 23 2018 hosted by Oregon High Desert Grotto & Glacier Cave Explorers, About the Seminar This is a comprehensive, 5day course covering techniques that will allow small groups of experienced cavers to extricate and evacuate injured companions, and /or survive while waiting for rescue. The course will draw from all levels of the NCRC curriculum, and is rigging intensive. The class involves ample time for small party rigging practice, and incorporates techniques from a broad range of SRT industries plus local refinements. This is an intensive five day introduction to cave rescue techniques that can be perf ormed by a party of 5 or less persons, using minimal gear normally carried on caving trips. This course teaches students how to handle most problems that arise while caving, including basic medical skills, moving patients through horizontal and tight obsta cles, helping persons who are stuck on rope, building and operating improvised haul and lower systems, sheltering in place, and how to prepare for and prevent problems with limited equipment and personnel. This course is NOT about litter based rescues or large operations. The target audience is project / expedition cavers, small teams working in caves, or rescue team members with caves in remote or inaccessible locations where minimal gear techniques can be used by a small hasty team, traveling light and fast. Course is also valuable to those leading grotto trips, or recreational trips into technical caves. Students will be expected to study some material in advance so that the workshop sessions reinforce and elaborate on existing information. Skills will then be practiced on the PNW alpine caving to wer, and then reinforced with 3 days of stations and scenarios in caves The course will be demanding with long days, but will provide participants with valuable skills that can be used to help themselves and others if a cave accident or entrapment should occur. Registration Cost: $200.00 includes lodging (camping), and meals during the 5 day course, (The full NCRC Manual is available for purchase at $40.00 each.) Class size is limited to 18 students.

No refu nds available after September 7 2018 Details on accommodations and logistics available at the registration link. There are no NCRC course prerequisites, however competent SRT skills are required. This is not a beginners class. For safety and class efficiency, all students will be required to demonstrate basic vertical skills before taking this course. Required skills, including knots, basic haul systems, and single rope techniques are described here: http://caves.org/commission/ncrc/national/NCRC_Student_Area/L3_EntryPrepPkg_HO_v140308.pdf Questions?
