Rescues on Skislopes and Loipes - TERCOM Recommendation Nr. 2

19 Sep 1998

Akja - Winter Rescue

The ICAR Terrestrial rescue committee recommends for rescues on ski slopes and loipes:


-> fundamentally at least two rescuers take care of an injured person and rest him in a rescue device (Canadian, Cascade, Akja, Helicopter) according to his injury.


-> on transport in an Universal Akja usually 2 rescuers are mandatory. The person behind can use poles or a rope.


-> exceptional on easy flat slopes with good snow conditions and minor injuries one rescuer maybe sufficient for the Universal Akja
