North Shore Rescue has a pre-plan referred to as our “Code Alpha” Avalanche Response plan. This plan is put into motion when NSR receives a tasking for a known or suspected burial of a person (or persons) in an Avalanche. This pre-plan rapidly brings together professionals with expertise in avalanche rescue, avalanche forecasting, avalanche control, and advanced medical care. It ensures a rapid response, while also ensuring that rescuer safety is the foremost consideration. When an NSR team member sees “Code Alpha” on a tasking, they know it is extremely serious. This weekend, the Code Alpha pre-plan was put to the test.
