Posted on behalf of Prof. Mike Tipton (University of Portsmouth):  

Predicting cold exposure survival time on land is a very inexact science. The Cold Exposure Survival Model (CESM) (written by Dr Peter Tikuisis) can, I believe,  be used for land predictions, but without knowing much about the circumstances of an accident, it will have very wide confidence limits.

As we all wrestle with COVID-19, I hope we can take good notes on how we structured our Rescue Coordination Centres to maintain the watch and protect our team members. As an example, JRCC Halifax moved from a floating schedule in which anyone could work with anyone to a four team approach. Teams remain working with each other during this time of social distancing to avoid cross contamination.
