ITRS 2017 - Call for Papers!


While the 2017 International Technical Rescue Symposium isn’t until November, it’s the perfect time to consider presenting at this year’s conference. The deadline for the ITRS Call for Papers is August 4, 2017.

Each year, ITRS brings together people form across the spectrum of rescue disciplines to share news and views on advances in equipment and techniques, technical problems and issues of moral concern. Presentations are a great opportunity to bring expertise from your field into this ongoing conversation. Previous topics have included:

  • Controversial Issues
  • New Equipment
  • New Developments in Gear Technology
  • Research and Testing Results
  • Technique and Systems Discussions
  • Medical Considerations in Rescue
  • Analysis of High Angle Accidents
  • Development in Helicopter Rescue
  • Equipment Standards

For more detailed information on presenting, download the “Call for Papers” PDF.

ITRS is jointly presented by CMC Rescue and Pigeon Mountain Industries. This year the event will be held November 2-5, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. To learn more or view the event brochure, please click here.
