SAR Member brave cold to train at Highland Forest
Sun. Dec 8th 2013

Search and Rescue members held monthly drill today at Highland Forest in the 24 degree weather. Members arrived shortly before 09:00 to a missing hiker scenario and were briefed on the hikers info then set up Type I teams to search for the hiker. Cell calls from the hiker did not have adequate GPS coordinates before dropping off. While teams searched we were able to get updated coordinates to get members in the area but still were unable to locate the wandering subject. Another call from the hiker got a good fix and allowed members to catch up near the subject. The Hiker was found just off the trail after falling and breaking his leg. SAR members attended to his leg and requested the SKEDCO devise from the Squad to transport the hiker out of the woods. Other team members responded to the location with the SKEDCO and team members packaged the patient and transported him to the road to awaiting help. All members debriefed, downloaded GPS files and signed out on the ICS forms. Special thanks to CASART member Rob Winter for playing our subject today. 7502
