The Rescuers

We worked with Summit on several occasions now. In each instance they have demonstrated an appreciation and sensitivity to our culture and dynamics. As a result, their exercises have all proven to be  energizing and useful and have contributed to the enhancement of working relationships within our organization.

The Idea

Vanished! Without a trace. Deep in the Canadian wilderness, a team of leading scientists set out to locate a rare flower. Their mission complete, the scientists were headed home. But they never arrived.

Your world-famous team is summoned for this challenging search-and-rescue mission in which you’ll apply your freshly acquired skills in GPS navigation, high-angle rescue and more! Can your team execute this rescue before the clock runs out? Communication and planning will be the keys to your success.

The Details

  • Your team must ultimately locate the scientists, treat their injuries, and evacuate them to safety
  • Team members will be split up and be trained in one area of specialization that may include:
    • High angle rescue
    • Rope stretcher construction
    • GPS navigation
    • Wilderness first-aid and base camp management
    • Radio communication
  • Once the Search and Rescue begins all of these diverse skills must be integrated with precision and speed
