akhalteke Posted December 6, 2012 Share Posted December 6, 2012 It's important to remember that SAR folks are trained to put their own safety above those of they rescue, for obvious reasons. Actually, it is quite the opposite. It is gospel that you are MORE important than your victim. The premise is that you cannot save the patient/victim if you are dead and creating another casualty will complicate the incident and risk the lives of more SAR techs. Now, if this practice is treally applied as it should is up for grabs but this is the doctrine of EVERY SAR group I have worked with and the new National Course taught by the Parks Service.
