When we developed ideas into courses, we considered many things. Yes, we went through the SWOT analysis as well. Know this will get you What, Where, When, and How!
I will let you reference this, however we went through all 4 elements before we engineered, designed, went to production and released a single course or product. What we love about the Technical Rescue Rope Systems Primer is the simplicity of the systems.
Technical rescue teams respond when the situation is especially difficult and requires significant resources to be deployed.
Examples of rescue call outs:
- Following a vehicle roll-over into a ravine, the victims are rescued via motorized means
- Evacuation of an injured worker from a location that is difficult to access
- Helicopter rescue operations in mountainous terrain
- Lost hikers in canyons and steep terrain with little to no way out
There are hundreds of other examples we can mention. The bottom line here is that a team can never train for everything, so there is critical foundation of what and where to start.
- Technical rescue teams have to operate in a variety of terrain types and have a mastery of progression and belay techniques on rope
- When the terrain allows, downward evacuation is preferred because of the gravity-assist
- Upward evacuation is a team effort that requires perfect coordination by everyone involved and demands techniques which are sometimes particularly complex, such as creating a haul system using lightweight pulleys, or counterweight techniques
