Backcountry Rescue - Netflix
Bone-crushing avalanches taking down skiers. Wild grizzly bears mauling hikers. Kayakers pinned under boulders in a rushing river. These people would never get out alive without the help of a fearless team of men and women, ready to deploy to save them. This is Backcountry Rescue.
Handling nearly 100 rescues a year, the Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) is hands down the busiest search and rescue operation in the nation. With more than 3 million adventure-seekers visiting Jackson, Wyoming and Grand Teton National Park annually, there's never a dull day for this dedicated crew. The team is made up of law enforcement, specially-trained wilderness EMTs, and seasoned rescue volunteers. They are bankers and ER docs, moms and dads who drop what they are doing and risk their lives - to help others out of danger.
Runtime: 30 minutes
Backcountry Rescue - Xcel Energy Cabin Creek Fire - Netflix
The Xcel Energy Cabin Creek Fire occurred on October 2, 2007, at Xcel Energy’s pumped storage hydroelectric plant near Georgetown, Colorado, a small town forty-five miles west of Denver. This accident killed five workers and injured three. The incident is thought to be the result of shoddy work by a contractor (RPI Coating) and Xcel Energy's willingness to cut costs at the expense of safety.
