   Provides information and skills to adequately perform basic vertical rope rescue techniques in an urban/suburban environment.

Topics include safety orientation, risk assessment, equipment, basic rappelling and ascending, anchoring, belaying, mechanical advantage, patient packaging, incident management, skills evaluation, and testing.
