Additionally, they will learn to conduct self-rescues without the use of standard rigging equipment. We introduce students to the significantly smaller CTOMS TRACE system. The TRACE system utilizes micro-components and smaller rope to reduce the weight and volume of required equipment. 􀁸 Ultra-light/Micro Components 􀁸 Small Team Rescue Scenarios 􀁸 Short roping 􀁸 Pulley Systems 􀁸 Multiple Uses of Standard Equipment 􀁸 Load Transfers 􀁸 Rope Ascensions/Descent [/accordion] [accordion title=”Heavy Rope Rescue (SV-TA-N-0327)”] The Heavy Rope Rescue course is an introductory level ropes course designed to provide participants with intensive rope and rigging instruction in a safe but challenging environment. The Peak also offers a variation of this course that focuses on Urban Heavy Rope Rescue. The students will receive instruction and the opportunity to practice skills on the following objectives: 􀁸 Equipment Requirements 􀁸 Basic Knots 􀁸 Anchor Systems 􀁸 Rappel/Ascension Techniques 􀁸 Litters 􀁸 High/Low Angle Rescues​ [/accordion] [accordion title=”Logistical Support Services (SV-TA-N-0335)”] Are you looking for somewhere to conduct an offsite exercise? Do you want your people to participate in the training and not have to work on the support side? Do you need someone to test your gear in the environments and conditions that matter? Are you deploying soon and want to conduct all of your pre-deployment training in one location? In addition to coordinating and providing training.We can provide full spectrum logistical support for large-scale exercises to include lodging, transportation, meals, and technical training support. We have numerous high altitude training areas with elevations as high as 11,000 ft. and three DoD approved high-altitude drop zones. In addition we maintain an excellent ongoing relationship and longstanding MOU with MTARNG Training Site Fort William H. Harrison, Helena MT with access to 30,000 acres of training areas and ranges. In addition to the MOUT areas at Fort Harrison, we also have two other locations in and near our headquarters in Butte. In Butte, we have access to a large industrial complex with numerous buildings. We also have an exclusive agreement with a company that owns an old hospital site with 40+acres, numerous buildings including the three-story main hospital, and a large tunnel system. Future improvements include surveyed HLZ and DZs on the site.  With a hangar located at the Bert Mooney Airport in Butte, and a 32-person classroom. It is available for use as a tactical operations center, exercise headquarters, or training facility. We also have access to another 10,000 􀁒􀀃􀁗􀁋􀁈􀀃􀀳􀁈􀁄􀁎􀂷􀁖􀀃􀁋􀁄􀁑􀁊􀁄􀁕􀀏􀀃􀁚􀁌􀁗􀁋􀀃􀀖 ,􀀓􀀓􀀓􀂷􀀃􀁒􀁉􀀃􀁒􀁉􀁉􀁌􀁆􀁈􀀒􀁆􀁏􀁄􀁖􀁖􀁕􀁒􀁒􀁐􀀃􀁖􀁓􀁄􀁆􀁈􀀑􀀃􀀺􀁈􀀃􀁋􀁄􀁙􀁈􀀃􀁄􀀃􀁇􀁕􀁒􀁓􀀃􀁝􀁒􀁑􀁈􀀃􀁕􀁌􀁊􀁋􀁗􀀃􀁄􀁆􀁕􀁒􀁖􀁖 the runway and can park a C-17 right in front of our hangar. Although we will conduct our training in any location worldwide, we established our headquarters in Southwest Montana to take advantage of a wide variety of terrain, altitude, and unparalleled access to some of the most challenging environments in the country. Within an 􀁋􀁒􀁘􀁕􀂷􀁖􀀃􀁇􀁕􀁌􀁙􀁈􀀃􀁉􀁕􀁒􀁐􀀃􀁒􀁘􀁕􀀃􀁋􀁄􀁑􀁊􀁄􀁕􀀏􀀃􀁚􀁈􀀃 can conduct mountaineering, ATV, snowmobile, high-angle shooting, rock climbing, high altitude diving, packhorse, and swiftwater rescue training. There are areas that are dense to scarcely vegetated, rivers and streams, and flat to mountainous terrain. All of which are subject to extreme temperature fluctuations. The diverse environment will further challenge your unit by forcing them to adapt mentally and physically while working in similar terrain/altitudes to those they may encounter on a deployment.​ [/accordion] [accordion title=”Confined Space Training (SV-TA-N-0338)”] Butte, Montana has approximately 10,000 miles of mine shafts and tunnels located directly under the city. Most of those are no longer used and filled with water now but there are still a few that are above the water level. LD has secured agreements with the owners of these mines to use the mines open shafts and tunnels for confined space and collapsed structure training. These training areas provide a real world environment that will challenge even the most experienced rescue technician.​ [/accordion] [/accordions]
