Welcome to the website for the Wilderness Search and Rescue Team 

 

 

 

Night is approaching........

and the temperature is dropping quickly. Alone in the woods, you have somehow become separated from your camping party. You've spent hours trying to find your way back....now you are surely lost, as well as cold, tired, hungry and frightened. You sit beneath a large tree, gathering leaves, dirt and brush around you trying to keep warm. Your thirst is overwhelming. you wonder if you will live until morning. Darkness falls. Then without warning, you see a flicker of light, hear the crashing of branches and are suddenly descended upon by a large dog wearing an orange vest bearing the word "RESCUE" Her handler is not far behind bringing food, water, first aid and your survival.

Search and Rescue Units Respond to Missing Hunter

See News Section for Details

 

SAR Training in the Cold and Rain 2 

Wilderness members participated in our bi-monthly drill this morning. On arrival to the staging area, the team was met with a scenario of a missing/ overdue hunter in the rain and cold. Teams were broken up and given assignments for a Type II search of two probable areas. Approximately an hour into the field a team located the hunter with a broken leg. The hunter had been tracking his deer all night and ironically located it when he tripped over it and broke his leg (drill scenario). Team members quickly assessed the situation and medical treatment was started while another team brought equipment from the staging area to assist in evacuation of the subject. The two teams worked together to package the hunter properly and load him into the SKEDCO devise so they could start the slow transport of carrying the subject out of the woods. The subject was transferred to a vehicle once on the road and team members followed the vehicle to the staging area. Team members debriefed the incident and filled out the ICS Forms and cleared the area. 

 

 

 

SAR Training in the Cold and Rain

 

SAR units held there monthly drill last night in the cold and rain. Scenario was a overdue hiker. SAR teams did a Type I search on the trails and located the subject in need of evacuation. A fire was started to warm the subject while members built a makeshift stretcher to get the hiker out of the woods.
