It’s 3AM Eastern, and Dave, Tracy and Scott (Tracy’s brother) just got back to Atlanta from participating as rescuers in a successful cave rescue in a cave in Alabama. This was Dave and Tracy’s first real rescue, and we were extremely well prepared by our CCRN (Colorado Cave Rescue Network) training. Thanks, CCRN! The Huntsville, Atlanta and other rescue teams did a great job. Dave, Tracy and Scott were with the patient from almost first contact all the way to the ambulance, and we are glad that the patient was doing well when they arrived at the ambulance.
We look forward to bringing CaveSim to many future cave rescue training events. If you’ve donated to us, thank you! If you have yet to donate, here’s one more reason to give. Donate now!
