The next presentation in the ongoing series of webinars put on by the NSS will teach viewers how to conduct an effective cave search when saving time means saving lives.

The presentation, put on by Rene Ohms, will teach you what factors to consider when faced with a lost subject(s) – how to save time by limiting your search area, strategies for deploying search teams, effective underground search techniques and how to keep your search team safe and accounted for.

An NCRC instructor with the National Cave Rescue Commission since 1999, Rene is an experienced caver, cave surveyor, and climber, and has spent thousands of hours in some of the world’s longest and most remote caves. She has worked for the National Park Service for 15 years, including a 13 year stint as a physical science technician at Jewel Cave National Monument where she coordinated cave exploration and research activities and managed the cave rescue program. She is now the natural and cultural resource manager at Devils Tower in Wyoming.

The event runs from 8:00 to 9:00pm CST on Tuesday, February 11th, 2014.

Registration is open, and as usual, space is limited, so reserve your spot now.

Also be sure to join 10 minutes early on the day of the presentation to assure your spot.
