Hi and welcome back!
So, today I am doing a bit of a summary on the following three organizations: National Ski Patrol, American Avalanche Association, and the Air Force Coordination Center. I will try not to be doing a direct copy of their sites!
National Ski Patrol
They have members in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia. Working for these guys you might have to brave the cold (unless you’re the manager sitting in a cozy little office…with your coffee!)…and these guys operate as a non-profit organization! They are a leading authority of on-mountain safety.
American Avalanche Association
On their website, they have the following line: Keeping people safe in avalanche country through education, professional development, outreach and research. Which sums that up decently.
Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (AFRCC)
Okay, so here is a bit of a summary of the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center’s responsibilities. Stated on the Air Force Rescue Coordination Centers website is that the Center is responsible for coordinating on-land federal SAR activities in the 48 contiguous United States, Mexico and Canada. The AFRCC operates all year round, all day long.
