scope:

This guide establishes the minimum training standard for LRT-Support Members as it relates to their general, field, and rescue-specific knowledge and skills. This document may appropriately be used to develop or evaluate a training document or program.

An LRT-Support Member rescues on the surface of the land only, including wilderness, mountainous, desert, or remote environments. This guide alone does not provide the minimum training requirements for rescuing in the high angle environment, partially or fully collapsed structures, in or on water, in confined spaces, or underground (such as caves, mines, and tunnels).

An LRT-Support Member is required to have knowledge and skill sets pertaining to the evacuation/carryout component of rescue.

LRT-Support Members must work under qualified supervision.

LRT-Support Members are eligible to be members of Type II search teams or crews as defined in Classification F 1993.

Type II teams which may utilize personnel trained to this guide are Kind A (wilderness), Kind C (mountainous), or other remote areas including urban or disaster areas that may be isolated or have lost their infrastructure.

Further training may be required before an LRTSupport Member can actually participate on a particular kind of rescue team, based on specific local need, regulations, or policies.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
