SEARCH AND RESCUE TRAINING- ADVANCED TECHNICAL ROPE RESCUES
On Saturday (6/1), the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue members participated in advanced technical rope rescue training in the Hualapai Mountains. The training focused on advanced technical rope rescue scenarios involved in challenging rescue situations. Rope rescues involve a complex understanding of rigging with anchors, lowering and raising systems and require continuous training in
different environments and situations to remain proficient with these perishable skills. This class included instruction on performing rescues using a high directional system, rappels using different types of equipment, and use of a stokes basket for low-angle rescues. Team members also discussed newer technologies and equipment and how they can be used to assist the more complex rescue situations.
