Tune in this week as Jake Urban, Deputy Director of TCSAR, joins Jim and Trav to talk about what the team faces as they head into treacherous situations to rescue others. “We work in a tremendous amount of avalanche terrain. One of my primary roles is to evaluate terrain and snowpack and help team members understand what those hazards are.” Jake tells Jim and Trav that there are a lot of things that can lead to an emergency situation – people may be unprepared or over confident in their abilities, acts of nature and being in the wrong place at the wrong time, sudden weather events, or human error. “I’ve seen experts who are conscious of their environment make trip up mistakes that don’t seem possible. But it’s simply because they’re too comfortable in their environment.” Regardless of the reason, Jake says this is their role and that’s why TCSAR is always on call, to help those in need.
