Accidents do happen, and this part of thesarvo is to assist in providing a search and rescue capability for climbers, as well as the general community. As we all know the situations that climbers get themselves into are by nature difficult and the locations challenging. As a consequence it is best if climbers respond to climbing or cliff accidents as they have the required expertise and local knowledge. Having the assistance from police with equipment, helicopters and communications may be critical to success, but this will require a little liaison and communication and the occasional practice. This site details what is going on in that space and shows what has gone on in the recent past.
The page will detail upcoming SAR training, self rescue techniques, technical matters, photographs and any other relevant material. Contributions are welcome.
It opens with some photographs taken by wilderness paramedic Richard Bugg of the SAREX held on the Acropolis in August 2012.
During the SAREX climbers were deployed from Cynthia Bay to Narcissus by Fast Response Vessel and from there onto the Acropolis by helicopter. A simulated assisted rescue was then conducted by Simon and Alex with assistance from other climbers, cavers and police.
