Icy Resolve: U.S. Coast Guard Ice Rescue Capabilities & Tactics

Phillip Null

Few environments are as harsh or as challenging as an ice covered body of water. Thick and able to support the weight of responders in some stretches, while thin, broken, or non-existent in others, ice presents an unpredictable terrain that weakens and disappears upon use. Temperatures associated with ice formation are lethal and make response times and actions on scene critical to the survival of both victims and responders. The further a winter emergency occurs from shore, the more complex the response becomes and the greater the need for specialized equipment and hardened personnel. The United States Coast Guard is the lead federal agency for any maritime emergency occurring in the navigable waters of the United States, even when those waterways are frozen, and boasts the capabilities, personnel, and experience to mount effective responses to even mass rescue events on ice floes far from shore.

Outcomes
– Recognize the types of winter emergencies that occur in the maritime environment
– Identify cold related injuries
– Explain Dr Gordon Giesbrecht’s 1-10-1 concept for cold water emergencies
– Identify ice rescue equipment and conveyances
– Determine treatment options for cold related injuries

Venue:  

Address:
Dynamic Earth, 112 Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire, EH8 8AS, United Kingdom

Description:

Hutton Room at Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
