So when a call comes in of a snowmobile in avalanche terrain that has fallen down a mine shaft a 100′, how do you pre-plan for that??

This was a complicated call

End of the dry spell.

Finally got called out today for a rescue of a fella who had his quad roll over on him. Unfortunately i was on the main lake fishing when i got the call and was to late to get there to be of any help. Its to bad, the fishing was hot!

I have been stopped many times this past few weeks by folks that have seen the show, very positive remarks and feed back. Almost all stated they were surprised at what we do and at what level we are trained. Also many thanks and words of appreciation for doing this volinteer

Was called out for 2 young males who were caught out on the top of a cliff off of a popular hiking trail in the city of Trail. They thought it would be a short cut but ended up losing light and became stuck. SAR and local fire rescue crews walked them out. They lite several fires on the side of the mountain to attract attention to their situation.

Another example of poor planning…….
