KISAR will hold its general membership meeting at 7:00 PM at Bayside fire hall this Thursday, Feb 21. The meeting will be very short.
Following the meeting John Sikes will walk us through what to expect from the training on this coming Saturday (Feb 23). The plan for Saturday is to rig a high line lowering system to help a litter negotiate a complex cliff face. Skills will include rigging a high line, a lower system with a main and modified belay line, and rigging a litter with an attendant. These concepts will be illustrated on the white board in the fire hall on Thursday evening. We will also continue to practice clear communication between members on the rope system. All members are encouraged to attend both the orientation on Thursday evening as well as the field practical on Saturday.
