  2. Lift Evacuation • The following are common elements of every evacuation: • Responsibility • Preparation • Communication and co-ordination • Equipment • Rescue procedures • Public relations

  3. Preparation • Make a plan • Explain the plan to all people involved • Train all staff • Obtain equipment • Check the equipment

  7. Equipment • Rescue rope • Lead line, rope, knots and splices • Rope devices • Rope sling, straps and hooks, pole seat

  8. Evacuation Procedures • Ski area management alerts the patrol that the lift must be evacuated • Patrollers go to the lift, form rescue teams and prepare the rescue equipment for use • As many teams as possible should be put into action, starting from the top and intermediate points on the lift line • One patroller will ski/board or walk the lift line to notify passengers that they are to be evacuated

  9. The Rescue • Fear, apprehension and cold may cause injuries not common to skiing • Guests must be told • Remain in the chair • Do not drop equipment • Do not attempt to jump • Begin rescue with the chair nearest the top of the lift

  10. The Follow -Up • Provide first aid for anyone injured during rescue • Record name, any injuries and time rescued • Assist guests in descending to the chalet • Do a sweep of lift area • Check all equipment for defects and report to management

  11. Public Relations • Do not speak to the press • Do not discuss causes for the lift stopping unless directed to do so by management • Do not promise coffee, free passes etc. • Be calm and confident • Emphasize the need for safety during evacuation, not speed
