Wilderness Risk Management

Medical, rescue, training and consulting services for safe and effective teams.

About Us

Austere delivers high-quality safety, medical and rescue consultation and on-location services to our valued clients. We develop risk management solutions for projects where environment, terrain, remoteness and complexity exceeds the clients ability to manage risk, or where the client prefers to outsource risk management and focus on the task at hand.

With decades of experience in complex medical, rescue and military operations, Austere is ready to navigate difficult risk in remote environments.

We are standing by to collaborate on your activity, and put together a risk management strategy that keeps your team safe and effective in the field.
