SAR Training in the Cold and Rain 2

SAR Training in the Cold and Rain 2 

Wilderness members participated in our bi-monthly drill this morning. On arrival to the staging are team were 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.
