About the Course

“Rope based litter operations have become the hallmark of rope rescue team around the world. The moving of an injured patient over, around and through various terrain types is most often best accomplished by packaging that person in a litter. Modern litters are strong, rigid and adaptable to many applications. Teams that are serious about patient care and transport will devote a considerable amount of training time perfecting their litter based technique and operations.” - Steve Crandall
