Gathering 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.

In order to encourage the informal free flow of information involving all participants, enrollment has been limited to 150 people. If necessary, a waiting list will be constructed.
ITRS is jointly sponsored by the American Alpine Club, Mountain Rescue Association, Fire-Rescue Magazine, National Association for Search & Rescue, Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians, and the National Cave Rescue Commission of the National Speleological Society.
ITRS 2004 brings together a wide variety of people involved in rescue, including those in mountain rescue, the military, law enforcement, park services, water rescue, outdoor recreation, fire service and rescue teams, along with equipment manufacturers and distributors.
FROM THEORETICAL PRESENTATIONS TO THOSE WITH PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS
? New Developments in Equipment ? Improved Techniques ? Medical Considerations in Rescue
? Comparative Discussions of Team Techniques ? Analysis of High Angle Accidents ? Equipment Testing
? Developments in Helicopter Rescue ? Industry Standards ? SAR Screw-ups
ITRS encourages a free flow of information among the participants, including informal evening sessions where attendees share their experiences with their peers. Bring your slides so you can share your local experience with other symposium attendees.
ITRS 2004 PRESENTATION AWARDS
To encourage and reward excellence in presentation, the co-hosts have inaugurated a "presenter award" program. The program is looking to award and acknowledge presentations which reflect excellence in: facts and data (rather than opinion or conclusion); choice of topic (applicable to field work); and state of the art technical rescue. After the final presentation, the attendees will vote on the presentations based on seven categories; one award going to each category. Each winner will receive a $200 honorarium.
A meeting of the ASTM F32 Search & Rescue Committee will be held following ITRS 2004 on Sunday afternoon and Monday at the Marriott.
