September 20-22
NCRC Orientation to Cave Rescue Class in Elkins, WV

This is an intense weekend class that is highly recommended for every active caver. You will learn what happens during a cave rescue and how to be a productive part of a rescue team. It also shows you why you should be a safe caver so you don't become the subject of a rescue. Friday evening and Saturday will be classroom and practical exercises. Sunday will be a mock rescue in a real cave. It's a busy weekend, but well worth the effort. These classes usually fill quickly. More information is here and a registration form is here.
