I think we can generalize here... the problem seems to be VT.

Also:
So when you buy a rescue "get out of jail" card, maybe they should have a checkbox on the back side, which could indicated the organization you'd prefer to save your ass.

a.  Only certified S&R please.
b.  Those IME heroes
c.  Overweight and out of shape volunteers - i'm not proud
d.  My momy
e.  No one,  just bought the card to show my support.

Can I be rescued by the Swedish Bikini Team?

I think that the community of climber most have there own rescue team, in the pure mentality of trad climbing, with different phone number and that we most go to save climber in trouble in the mountain without calling 911. actually, those I know who are in the rescue are climber, not worker for the government

of course, hiker is not include in climbing accident.

Already exists in NH.

EDIT: Calling 911 will often allow your cell phone to get through as it will go into "Emergency Mode" and use any carrier towers, plus it will help rescue teams get a location on the caller. If the rescue is technical in nature there is a flow that will reach MRS to activate. Whether or not these rescuer's fit your definition of "pure mentality of trad climbing" is moot.

They are all volunteers that do not "work for the government" but are happy to give back to the community by coming to a fallen climber's need.

I can picture Rick gets a call at around midnight from some poor bastard stuck up on the rockpile in deteriorating conditions.

Rick W: "Lucky Luke says I have to ask if your're a climber or a hiker."

Poor Bastard: "I'm normally a climber but today I was only hiking."

Rick W: "Sorry, call 911." hangs up and pulls the blankies back up to his chin.
