RECCO Training at PCMR

by Utah Author January 15 2009 0 Comments


While I was up at PCMR, I bumped into a couple of patrollers with a funny looking device and probes... Needless to say, I was interested. Turns out, it was a senior patroller teaching the ropes to a new member about RECCO devices and their avalanche beacons. RECCO devices are pretty cool, they are implanted into a lot of new gear, everything from boots, to gloves and jackets. Then, after an avalanche, the chip will send out a signal which patrollers and other rescue workers can use to locate the victim.

Nearly all of the resorts in Utah, and many others world wide are using this innovative system. If you are heading into avalanche territory, using gear with this technology could save your life. So, might as well play it safe.
