TRAININGS

Bay Area Mountain Rescue Symposium
Martinez
2017-11-18
Leaders: Gleason

The mountain rescue community around Northern California includes a wealth of knowledge and experience. On Saturday, November 18th, Contra Costa Search and Rescue (CoCo SAR) will host a Mountain Rescue Symposium to tap into that collective expertise. The goal is to share best practices, key learnings, new trends and technologies, and other factors that lead to mission success. Beyond just the technical aspect of mountain rescue, the symposium is also a chance to get to know each other on a personal level. This will be a rare opportunity to meet in a non-emergency setting, away from high-intensity mutual-aid callouts and MRA recertifications. Please join us to catch up on the latest news, network among your peers, share strategies, and discuss topics most relevant to those who search the toughest terrain California has to offer.
