ABSTRACT

COVID Lessons from the Central Oregon Rappellers   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The following are some thoughts and experiences related to a recent rappel training event held in John Day, Oregon. The plan was to recertify rappellers simultaneously at multiple sites by utilizing the National Rappel Program's 'PACE' [Primary plan, Alternate plan, Contingency plan, Emergency plan] training model. The Central Oregon Rappellers were scheduled to go to John Day, Oregon to utilize the rappel tower and then spike out on the national forest and utilize a remote helibase site for the live operations. Rappel re-certification events are typically attended by multiple crews who train together in inter-mixed groups to promote standardization and cohesion among the national rappel community. However, due to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] concerns, the plan was to have crews work through their re-certification training as isolated modules with minimal interaction from outside personnel."
