NCRC cave rescue training in AL

Postby Tim White » Mar 6, 2006 12:34 pm

The NCRC – Southeastern Region presents:
A NCRC Regional Cave Rescue Operations and Management Seminar – Level 1, 2 & 3
June 16 – June 24, 2006
at Union Hill School Somerville, Alabama
(the same location as the 2005 NCRC National Weeklong)

This seminar consists of extensive classroom and fieldwork in all phases of cave rescue including underground environment, vertical rescue, hauling systems, extrication techniques, medical management, communication systems, and the organization and management of cave rescue operations. Basic and advanced course material is presented for students who typically include cavers, emergency services personnel, and emergency managers.

The seminar provides approximately 100 hours of instruction over eight days. Its classes are physically strenuous and participants must be in good physical health. Students should be prepared to work in difficult situations, both above and below ground.

It is very rare and under special circumstances that a Regional is allowed to conduct a Level 3 training. The SE Region is honored that the NCRC BORC approved this Seminar! National Instructors Becky Jones and Rod Dennison will once again be lead instructors for Level 3!
All 3 levels of this Regional training will be conducted and adhere to the same high standards and quality as a National event.

Register now and register early, as class sizes may be limited. For a brochure, registration form and contact information see the training link at: http://ncrc.info or a direct download:

Super! :kewl: Scott, you are going to have a great Level 1. DJ Walker, a very knowledgeable caver from Texas, will be the Levell 1 Lead Instructor. DJ is a career firefighter with the Austin FD, where he is on the departments special rescue team. His technical skills are top rate as are his teaching skills. On his days off, DJ teaches caving, rock climbing, etc. for a high school program. He also teaches technical rope rescue for the industrial and rescue communities. DJ is not just a rescue geek, but a caver traveling to Mexico often.

We feel that all of instructors for this training event are the “[b]best of the bestâ€

Just to note, I took Level 3 at Union Hill last year and had a blast. If nothing else just being able to stop by the NSS headquarters was cool. :-)

And I'll vouch for the instructors, at least the ones I know that are going. It'll be great.
Cavers rescue cavers!

I just noticed this was still stuck. Tim?

Anyway.... The next weeklong is in Salem Virginia on June 16th-June 23rd.

This will be a National Sponsored weeklong which means all levels will be offered. See the web page for details.

NOTE: LEVEL 3 enrollment may be limited so contact the registrar before signing up for that level.

Note also once again, the Friday night preceeding the actual Seminar a vertical workshop will be offered to any student who feels they need the help.

All levels have minimal vertical requirements, so this can make sure you pass them.

Hope to see you all there!
