Sierra Rescue. In California at the technical rescue training centre with expert instructors
Sierra Rescue is located in Taylorsville, California, and is specialised in the training of rescuers for extreme conditions. Courses deal with rescue in swift water, wilderness areas, rope training and rescue involving animals. Bespoke training is also available with specific courses designed to client demand.
