Cyril Shokoples

Saturday November 12, 1800-1920 MST

Cell phone, sat phone, InReach, Spot, Zooleo, PLB, GPS... It’s a new world. Go ultralight and fast as rescue is just a push of a button way. Who needs a tarp and first aid kit? Gear just slows you down when you are trying to post about your incredible fast pace. Why bother with expensive wilderness emergency response training? Accidents rarely happen and when they do, just push a button. Yup, it’s a new world. Use your phone as a GPS and update Facebook and Instagram from the summit, your ski tour or paddling route! Everything is great until your battery fails and an accident occurs just as the weather comes crashing down. You and your pals now have to figure it all out from first principles.

Using real life examples from his decades of experience, Cyril will chat about how equipment, training and preparation, or lack thereof, led to extremely variable outcomes in mountain emergencies he has been involved in.


The CAWM2022 conference will be hosted November 11-13, 2022 in partnership with Public Safety Canada's Search and Rescue New Initiatives Fund (SARNIF).

A hybrid format conference with pre-conference courses, lectures, social activities, a keynote speaker, workshops, and more!

All wilderness medical professionals and learners are welcome including paramedics, nurses, SAR personnel, guides, ski patrollers, first responders, academics, and physicians.

CAWM 2022 will be provided in English with simultaneous French translation for all presentations and select workshops. See workshop descriptions for more information.
