A Shout-Out to Peak Rescue Institute for their amazing commitment to Excellence and Service.

To be effective, rescue personnel must be able to move over steep and difficult terrain with confidence and without incurring unacceptable risk. Use the best available hand and footholds. Search for holds deliberately and thoughtfully. Generally, footholds are preferable to handholds; legs will support more weight for longer periods than arms.

In order to work effectively and efficiently, the rescuer must be agile and comfortable in the rescue environment. The environment may include steep or vertical terrain, exposure to great heights, slippery surfaces, loose rock, broken terrain, etc. The rescuer must be able to move with ease and confidence in the rescue environment and must be able to assess terrain in order to choose appropriate techniques.
