ECRA demonstrated cave rescue techniques during ICAR congress

On October 11, 2022, during the practical day of the ICAR congress, the member countries Croatia and Switzerland had the opportunity to present cave rescue techniques.

After a short welcome to the workshop participants by Andy Scheurer on behalf of ECRA, four members of the Speleo-Secours Switzerland demonstrated three different counter-weight lifting methods, commented by Danijel Frleta. During the re-rigging from the French to the Italian lifting system, additional information about the remits of ECRA were provided and when changing to the US system the 2 country organisations were introduced.

A lot of appreciative feedback was received, acknowledging the differences between cave and mountain rescue.

Thanks to the two country teams representing us.
