Earlier this month representatives from Rigging for Rescue once again attended the International Technical Rescue Symposium in Ft. Collins, Colorado.  Every year ITRS brings together members of the rescue community to discuss the state of the art of technical rescue.  This event is always a worthwhile experience – a great opportunity to share ideas and visit with friends.

Included in this year’s program was a report from Matt Stark from YOSAR.  Matt shared the findings from an ongoing evaluation of the Yosemite Helicopter Rappel Program, which included a study conducted in conjunction with Rigging for Rescue.  The RfR report can be found here.

Next year’s ITRS will be held in Seattle, Washington from November 1-4.  We hope to see you there!
