Learning how to properly rescue someone from a tree can be more challenging than one may think. If someone gets stuck in a tree, who do you call? 911? What if the tree is in a wilderness situation, how would search and rescue teams access the tree to retrieve the victim?
This course is designed for those who are experienced with DRT climbing skills* and are climbing with others in a controlled environment or in a wilderness tree climbing setting with family and friends. It is also a great refresher course for all those who have accomplished the Facilitator Course.
The two day course covers basic and advance DRT rescue techniques, including multi-pitch and team assist rescue, another TCP exclusive.
You will learn how to use special tools designed specifically for rescue. We will cover how to improvise with what you have on your saddle at any moment. We will examine multiple rescue scenarios, from a stubborn climber not wanting to come down to an unconscious climber stuck high aloft. We will address problem solving and challenge your creative thinking. You will get plenty of time on rope to practice every scenario.
*SRT Rescue courses are available upon request. Minimum 2 students.

“OHSTAR (Oregon Humane Society Technical Animal Rescue) has been attending TCP for the last 7 years! Volunteers attend a custom course designed for our team, which addresses the types of emergency calls we get in the canopy.
We receive over 700 calls per year about animals stuck in trees, and keeping our climbers up on their skills is only possible under TCP’s training.”
