Adirondack-North Technical Rescue

ADK North Technical Rescue was founded in 2011, quickly becoming the leader in technical rescue training in the Northeastern United States. Donald Uhler brings more than 40 years of rescue experience to every group they instruct, whether it be Swiftwater, Rope, or Ice technical training. The instructors are very active in their local community rescue teams. Donald is one of the leaders of their local Fire/Rescue Team, the Saranac Volunteer Fire Department. As well, they are active in the Regional Team, Adirondack Technical Rescue Task Force.

Being based in Saranac, New York, approximately 40 miles Northeast from Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain, in the Northern Adirondack Mountains, provides ourselves and our classes with a wonderfully challenging class room and training facility.

If you are looking to solidify your Organization’s rescue ability and preparedness, make ADK North Technical Rescue your first choice.
