How we Operate
IRRC team members are First-Aid, CPR and AED certified. In addition to having First-Aid, CPR and AED training, some team members have EMT and/or Paramedic experience, Although we are not a medical provider, we have the means to stabilize an injured OHV user and facilitate transport to a higher level of medical authority. Secondary to first aid skills and what makes IRRC stand out from other groups is our off-road logistical capabilities. For all OHV posts, IRRC brings an Incident Command trailer, several 4x4 vehicles along with a host of rapid-response teams on dirt bikes and quads and utv's. All personnel carry professional radio equipment, and many are GPS-equipped. This equipment is supplemented by the off-road experience of our team members both required to safely and quickly traverse the harsh desert and mountain terrain. Most members have extensive experience exploring the Southern California deserts, and know the terrain well. The combination of our equipment and experience enables us to search for, and rescue, injured OHV users much quicker than government agencies. We can then coordinate the transfer of injured OHV users to medical facilities, by ground ambulance or airship, as needed.
