Correct searching in case of emergency
- Always probe perpendicular to the snow surface.
- Probe spiral in 30 cm intervals around the marked fine search results.
- Communicate a hit and leave probe in place.
Leave probe in place during the whole digging work! The probe serves as an indispensable orientational guide.
Even with systematic probing work the buried person can be missed several times and this can lead to uncertainty. Furthermore the interpretation of the results is often difficult: "Clack, Clack.." - was a ski, a ice layer or a rock probed?
When probing with the PIEPS iPROBE a continuous/steady light indicates a "hit". Even if the buried person is just failed with the probe, this is the starting signal for digging. With the PIEPS iPROBE you can save valuable time in the companion rescue!
