How to... Use an Avalanche Transceiver

Statistics show that in the event of an avalanche accident a buried victim has between fifteen to twenty minutes to be recovered alive.

Although the emergency services are excellent at recovering those unfortunate enough to be caught in an avalanche, they cannot always be relied upon to mobilise within this small window.  It is therefore essential to be able to carry out a self-contained rescue.
