Winter Survival Training Exercise 2020
Part of our team training is to practice those skills necessary in a winter ground search and rescue operation. Every year we bring our diverse experience together to practice the skills of building (and sleeping in) over-night shelters for winter conditions, and different methods for fire starting and weathering the fire through cold and wet factors. As this event often includes family members, this year we were honored to participate in a grid-line search with efforts made to recover “Easter egg clues” well hidden by a few young recruits. As well as a refresher on patient packaging, and a visit from Luke (K-9 in training), this training event was time well spent team building.
