While this was our first live call for our SAR-ES Team, we have been training for this for months. Our teams were perfectly in sync regarding procedures and radio communications, and we couldn’t be more pleased of the outcome. Handling this non emergent situation allowed other emergency resources to be better utilized, or to stay home with their families as we enter this holiday weekend. This is the founding principle around our team.
As a reminder, be sure you know the route you are attempting during this season. This party was simply following their GPS, as many of our clients do. Snow came up fast, and before they knew it they were stuck! This happens quite often!
Thank you to our volunteers for the hasty response, and to Gilpin County for their trust.
