FCSAR September Meeting

Patient Packaging and Carry Out

   The September Search and Rescue meeting began with a slide show presented by Courtney Crawford. It included photos from previous classes, SAR events, and searches.

   The Training portion of the meeting consisted of Patient Packaging and Carry Out Techniques. The team training officer presented the information in the classroom. After the classroom portion members were asked to use the techniques on an obstacle course that had been set up behind the building. The course required the team members to negotiate difficult terrain, in the dark, that is commonly found on hiking trails in Arkansas.

   The meeting continued back in the classroom where members discussed a new uniform policy, social media policies, increased responsibilities of those in Incident Command, plus future team hikes and training.

   Franklin County Search and Rescue meets every 3rd Thursday of the month. All meetings are open to those who might be interested in joining the SAR team or learning more about Search and Rescue in our state.
