Companion Rescue Clinic
Join us at Flathead Valley Community College in Kalispell on Saturday, March 7th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for a rescue clinic focuses on avalanche rescue skills for small recreational groups.
After attending a 1-2 hour lecture and a 4-6 hour field day students will understand, or be able to:
• Wear & operate an avalanche beacon.
• Properly carry and assemble an avalanche shovel and probe.
• Effective probing and shoveling strategies.
• Perform a mock companion rescue (pinpoint, probe, fully extricate an object) in simple terrain in less than 5 minutes.
• Know how to practice these skills frequently and maintain rescue equipment.
