Guardian "angels" in the Wild
The importance of Medical Survival for the survival of injuries and health problems caused by the dangers of the wild, as well as by "Crime + Terror" or "Jaw + Claw" (Wildlife) can not be overstated. - Therefore, we also dedicate this topic special attention in the expert course.
For Ranger, the rescue of people who are in need of help in the wild is one of the major professional tasks. - This applies to both colleagues and tourists or other people who have been injured, are ill or lost. But this task can occur to everyone who goes into the wilderness if a teammate does not return from a solo outing or when receiving emergency signals in the wilderness from strangers.
The search for and recovery of wounded in the wild is commonly referred to as "Search & Rescue". The Wilderness Rescuer must be able to recognize and follow rescue signals, identify and locate people in need of help and than rush for help, even through difficult terrain. - Fast action is usually needed because an injured person could be discovered by predators before help arrives. Proper first aid must be applied under wilderness conditions. The evacuation or transport of the inured person is the next challenge - or to quickly get help, which is often a demanding walk through the wild.
The Wilderness Rescue course builds on the skills we've already acquired in the Basic and Bachelor's course, but goes much further in the requirements for the participant
Nature & Wilderness Experience:
The Wilderness Search+Rescue Training is an intense, physically demanding action in wild nature. The Wilderness Rescuer must be tracker, scout and medic in one person. It also require a great deal of familiarity with the wild, wilderness survival skills and keen wilderness senses that the participants could develop in the previous courses. - This course is therefore, beside new things to learn, a challenge of the special class for the expert course participants.
