Rescue Course


➽ Rescue Course

Climbing places a strong emphasis on methods that may avoid or lessen the severity of accidents. But, even the most well-prepared climbers may at some point find themselves in a predicament that calls for first aid and rescue abilities. In the realm of mountains, life and death are inextricably intertwined. The majority of experienced climbers have had at least one near-death experience, and they are aware that it is of far more value to save a life on a climb than it is to reach the top of a mountain. In order to perform a rescue operation in a secure manner, qualified volunteers are required in every emergency situation. A climbing group has to be prepared to provide first aid and start search and rescue activities in the event that they get separated from outside help for many hours or days. First aid and mountain rescue are the two aspects of emergency response that are required in the event of a catastrophic accident or sickness. The first aid skills that are taught in the majority of sessions held in metropolitan areas and work places are intended to assist a critically wounded subject in surviving for a limited period of time. Alpine rescue is a term that refers to the actions that may be taken by a party in order to extract a sick or wounded climber from the environment of the mountains and rescue an injured climber from tough terrain.

In spite of the fact that high-altitude climbing, mountaineering, and trekking are extremely popular in India, only one of the six mountaineering institutes that are run by the government and are open to the general public in the country teaches the essential skills needed for high-altitude search and rescue. It is a comprehensive curriculum that teaches rescue procedures on rock faces, cliff faces, snow fields, after avalanches, crevasses, and ice. Also, it teaches how to use GPS devices, read maps, and perform other outdoor survival skills. The institutions provide corporate training with a focus on outdoor activities, which are an exceptionally effective medium for training in both new and technical training. The participants are required to engage in physically demanding activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, river crossing, confidence course, artificial climbing, and target shooting in addition to engaging in more lighthearted and entertaining pursuits such as trust fall, treasure hunt, bathing in mountain stream pools, and traversing the difficult rope course, etc. This encourages the development of a spirit of teamwork, the acceptance of difficult tasks, the enhancement of capabilities for taking risks, the strengthening of self-confidence, and the determination to achieve the goals that have been set. These training programmes enable volunteers to better understand one another, which is crucial for a rescue operation in real-world scenarios so that they can work together as a team. Volunteers should be allowed to take breaks from their job if they are feeling severely uncomfortable, and leaders should be on the lookout for indicators of cold stress. Leaders of Search and Rescue operations are responsible for ensuring that shift plans provide sufficient downtime for employees and that enough supplies of water and other fluids are always accessible. They need to implement suitable engineering controls and work procedures in order to cut down on the potential for cold stress.

The rescue search and rescue training based programme that we at Himalayan Adventure Tours put on lasts anything from seven to ten days.
