Training Weekend

The RAT-SAR team was back on the bluffs this past weekend training on raises and lowers at Bucks Pocket State Park. This was the first training event for some of our new members and concluded a two-weekend rope rescue operations class. 

RAT-SAR is a Southeastern regional search and rescue team founded on the Mountain Rescue / Alpine principles of self-sufficient, mobile teams trained to operate on-trail or off-trail in remote wilderness, mountainous, high angle, subterranean and other austere environments.
