Avalanche Rescue & Operations
This is probably a bit out of the normal range of responses most of you deal with, but I wanted to see if anyone has any materials they like to use in classroom or field training re: avalanche rescue and awareness.
I have extensive materials currently but I'm always looking for new, interesting, and/or innovative ways to present training topics.
On a related note - do many of you have first due or mutual aid responsibilities in avalanche prone areas? If so, what level of response (awareness/ops/tech) is typical and is it a USAR/TRT type response? Are these typically multi-agency incidents managed via ICS/unified command?
