Topic:          

Back country Emergency Communication and Rescue.

 
Speaker:      Mark Morford
 
Description: 

 Back country Emergency Communication and Rescue.  This presentation will explore technologies for emergency communications and what to expect during a back country rescue. Mark will also talk a bit about dealing with tragedy prior to availability of professional staff. He will conclude with some humorous stories that have happened on the mountain and believe me there are some great ones.
