Companion Rescue/Beacon Clinic

This clinic is for beginner to expert. You can never have enough practice saving your friends life!  Demos of several different types (BCA, Ortovox, Pieps, Mammut/Barryvox) will be available.  Dress to be outside on the snow.  All of these meet at The Fifth Season at 9 am, 300 N. Mt. Shasta Blvd, Mt. Shasta City, then travel to a training site.

 Transceiver clinics will be held on Saturdays, December 6, 2014, January 3, February 7 and March 7, 2015.
