The presentation will discuss different types of backcountry rescue extractions with the Bell 407 Aircraft that is used for both the Banff Visitor Safety Program as well as the Kananaskis Public Safety program. Rescue specialists will discuss first aid techniques that can be done in the remote environment including limitations on different techniques given the aircraft and the extraction techniques used. Discussions will include the use of specialized tools such as Vacuum mattress and splints, types of limited first aid gear we carry based on 44 years of practical experience in the field. A discussion of mCPR and the use of the Zoll Autopulse will be had and how it can be incorporated into a teams tool box.

A 407 Aircraft will be on hand and all of the applicable rescue gear carried by Public Safety Specialist in the Field.
