Sichuan Mountaineering Association Rescue Exchange with MRA

Wheeled litter evacuation

11-Sep-2012; RMRG, Summit County Rescue Group (SCRG) and members of the Sichuan Mountaineering Association (SMA) after a day of rescue training at Mt. Siguniang National Park (Four Sisters National Park), Sichuan Province, China. Seven RMRG and five SCRG members travelled to China in September to participate in the exchange and provide technical rescue training to their Chinese hosts. Training included four days of lectures and field personal and team training on rope work, avalanche awareness, low angle evacuation and land search operations.

Mt. Siguniang National Park is a World Heritage site with soaring granite walls, glaciers, black bears and yaks. SMA is a chinese government sponsored mountaineering association that provides mountain guides for local and foreign clients in the Sichuan region. SMA assisted in the search and then recovery operation for Johnny Copp, Michah Dash and Wade Johnson in 2009. Funds raised in support of that operation led to an SMA delegation rescue exchange visit to Colorado in 2010. The 2010 exchange in turn inspired the 2012 exchange.
