Mountain rescue training with Rescue North Carolina.
The RAT-SAR swiftwater team had the honor of working alongside some top notch Air Force ParaRescue (PJs) for 5 days of advanced swiftwater rescue training on the Nantahala River. Special thanks to Rescue NC for instructing the course!
RAT-SAR team members along with Rescue NC spent 4 days instructing a rope rescue certification course to SAR team members in the mountains of western North Carolina. This course was part of the Haywood Colllege Wilderness Weekend program which trains / certifies North Carolina first responders and wilderness rescue professionals in various techniques for rescuing individuals in remote, mountainous terrain. The SAR team responds to numerous calls each year in Western North Carolina. We are proud to be part of their training solution.
