BCA Avalanche Rescue/Tranceiver Online Survey | UNITED STATES, COLORADO | 05/13/2010, by Editors
Have you ever used a transceiver to attempt an avalanche rescue? Here's your chance to help make avalanche safety equipment and training better.
Backcountry Access (BCA) is taking their ongoing research to the next level: they want to hear from people who have had to use their avi gear for real. For purposes of their study, it doesn't matter whether or not the device was used successfully—or whether the incident was reported. And don't worry about privacy- they won't publish your name if you don't want them to.
This research will be used in BCA's ongoing product development efforts. It might also be used in papers published in journals and on the BCA website, at http://www.backcountryaccess.com/research .
If you're interested, please complete the survey HERE. It's a quick & easy form and your feedback will help BCA to improve their gear & training.
If you haven't been involved in an avalanche but know someone who has, please pass it along to them.
You may also contact Bruce Edgerly at (303)417-1345 (x101) or email@example.com. They will honor any requests to remain anonymous.
If you provide them with your personal information, then they will reward you with BCA schwag (hat, T-shirts, etc.). If BCA uses your personal anecdotes in published materials, then they will update your beacon, shovel, probe or backpack to the latest BCA model. That's a sweet deal if you ask me!
