Summit County Rescue Group and Colorado Mountain College Breckenridge are partnering to provide discounted medical training to local rescue teams, according to a news release.

Courses such as wilderness first responder, high-angle rescue, swift water rescue, emergency medical responder, wilderness technical rescue and avalanche rescue would be offered at a discounted rate for rescue groups.

“This partnership is an opportunity for regional mountain rescue teams to not only work together to build relationships but to also gain cutting-edge knowledge and practice life-saving techniques in a controlled learning environment from local SAR experts,” CMC instructor and rescue group member Ben Butler said in the release.

The partnership is expected to begin later this month with a wilderness first responder class for Summit County Rescue Group and Alpine Rescue Team members.
