Rescue Scenarios with Rocky Mountain Rescue

On Tuesday, we met Alex Hearn, a volunteer with the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group. Students applied their outdoor leadership skills to complete a mock rescue scenario. Drew seriously injured his leg and ankle while hiking about 6 miles from a trailhead with 2 hours of light left. Given the muddy terrain, it was much harder to evacuate Drew that students initially thought, but they learned how important it is to STOP: Stop, Think, Observe, and Plan before deciding to evacuate someone. Great job everyone!
