The NPS Task Force is established to unite key players in NPS rescue and LE efforts to advance the national conversation on Stress Injury and Psychological First aid by sharing innovations, collaboration and offering of tools for the wider NPS community.
This is primarily focused on LESES initiatives but will likely have larger reach to the NPS community.
"I’m Kyle Juszczyk. This summer will be my third season working as a Climbing Ranger for Mount Rainier National Park. As a Climbing Ranger my primary duty is providing emergency services and search and rescue on the upper mountain of Rainier. In the winter I’m a ski patroller, avalanche educator, and ski guide. I’m pursuing full Mountain Guide Certification through the AMGA, and plan to be a career mountain professional and educator."
