ITRS is the leading forum for up-to-date, state-of-the-art, technical rescue information. Rescuers representing the areas of mountain, cave, fire, industrial, and swift water gather to discuss ways to improve safety and performance.

The Symposium format consists of two and a half days of peer presentations with plenty of opportunity for you to talk to other rescuers and exchange ideas, find out what others are doing, and learn how they are solving problems.

In order to encourage the informal free flow of information among participants, enrollment has been limited to 150 people. If necessary, a waiting list will be constructed.

No paper registrations will be taken. Please click the link below to register online.
