Advanced Rescue

Members of the RAT-SAR team assisted with teaching the Advanced Wilderness Rescue class in Pisgah National Forest this past week.  Wilderness Week is a week-long training event for North Carolina Search and Rescue personnel with several classes going on at the same time.  We worked on tree rescues, single rope rescues, twin tensioning systems, traveling hauls, high-lines, and ended the class with a simulated waterfall / canyon rescue down Flat Laurel Creek.  It wouldn’t be Wilderness Week without a ton of rain and this year was no exception.  We always love getting to train with the MSAR group.  You’d be hard pressed to find a more skillful, professional rescue team anywhere.
