ITRS 2020

November 5 – 8, 2020

Denver, CO
The International Technical Rescue Symposium is a gathering of persons from across the spectrum of rescue disciplines to share news and views on advances in equipment and techniques, technical problems, and issues of mutual concern.  Attendees are typically paid professionals or volunteer rescue personnel from fire departments, national and state parks, mountain rescue teams, and other similar organizations.

Attendance is limited to preserve the collaborative nature of ITRS and to maintain opportunity for meaningful connection and information exchange.
