Risks in Mountain Rescue Operations Manual


Risks in Mountain Rescue Operations Manual

The Mountain Rescue Association, a national non-profit membership association dedicated to saving lives through rescue and mountain safety education, has developed this program to be used by any organization that may be required to respond to a backcountry rescue operation.

At the conclusion of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Identify how mother nature, physical elements, mental and emotional elements, and external influences contribute to risk in rescue operations;
  2. Understand other external hazards affecting risks in rescues, and;
  3. Understand methods to reduce risk on the basis of the elements presented.

This program would not have been possible without the kind assistance of many mountaineers and rescuers. Our thanks to all whom offered assistance.
