KISAR will be holding a general membership meeting on Wednesday, Nov 17 at 7:00 PM at Bayside Fire Hall. Following the meeting we will present information regarding a Two Tensioned Rope System (TTRS) . TTRS is the technical rescue rigging standard for search and rescue and allows the safe raise and lower of a rescuer with a litter and/or rescue subject across a variety of slope angles. Because Covid has been so disruptive to our regular training schedule and we are all a little rusty, we will be concentrating on rope work fundamentals like scene and edge safety, understanding rigging hardware, knots and anchors, litter rigging, and building and operating a mirrored raise and lower rope system.
We will be observing current Covid precautions during the meeting and training. Be vaccinated, wear a well-fitting mask, maintain social distance, and please stay home if you are feeling sick. A negative Covid NAAT or PCR test within 48 hours of a KISAR meeting or training is a suitable substitute for full Covid vaccination.
