On October 6th and 10th, 2014, the International Commission for Alpine Rescue (ICAR) met in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. It was the first time in its 66 year history that ICAR met in the United States.  Over 300 rescuers from 54 countries came together for the exchange of information and best practices in alpine rescue.

Each year, Topograph Media produces the Annual Highlights Video. CMC Rescue is proud to be a continuing sponsor of this two-part series, which can be watched here:
