Rescue Team Gofundme
« on: February 08, 2019, 18:40:41 PM »
In the months of Oct. 2018 to Jan. 2019 we did 6 rescues and we've done a total of 10 so far in 2 1/2 years.

What We Need
The resources of the local Protection Civil are stretched pretty thin. Sometimes the backboard or head restraint is being used for another emergency in the town. So we want to have equipment dedicated to the climbing community that we can get to in a time of emergency. We need a Stokes basket, backboard, spider immobilization straps, a neck collar, head immobilizer, emergency splints and finally radios. This is by no means a complete list of everything we need but it gives you an idea.

I was there last season for one of the rescues. We helped carry a woman down from the Mini Super Wall.  Se was obviously in real pain. It felt good to be able to help out some. This is a good cause.
