snowmobiler at Monte Cristo. Winter Rescue & Jeep Patrol were out 18th
& 19th. Mountain Rescue was called out on the 20th. On the 20th
Lifeflight & and Salt Lake County Sheriff helicopter were out and located the victim.
He was in good shape.
News: Note the dates for the trainings, not all are the first
Saturday (after the first Tuesday). There are 2 weekend trainings.
There are changes to the roster. New
Rosters attached, update yours with the new one.
The attached sheet needs to filled out and
returned to Colette. It is to help get all our training records as accurate and current as
possible. We need to make sure that our training records are as up to date and complete as
possible. There have been SAR organizations that have been sued by families. Good training
records will be needed if that was to happen here.
Those people that have a radio, remember to have
it on to Channel 4 (Weber North) as you drive to a call-out, if it is called off dispatch
will announce it on that channel. Change to Channel 2 (Statewide Search & Rescue) once
you reach scene. Also, remember to bring spare batteries and a charger. If it is a long
call-out batteries can be recharged in the Mob Com.
North Face orders. There will only be one order
per year now (per North Face). In the future, when stuff comes in the Sheriff's office
will let the team's commander know and they will contact you. DO NOT call the Sheriff's
office to see if your items are in.
We are hoping to have a new Outdoor Emergency
Care class starting in late March/early April. Those people interested contact Colette.
The Internet site that John Sohl has put on the
web has changed: planet.weber.edu/sar John will be putting our current
newsletters on the web. The old newsletters from November 1998 are also on the site. John
has pictures from the last call-out on the page.
