KISAR October Training

KISAR members met at the Pyramid Mountain parking area at 10 am and hiked up to top of Jibber Bowl at about 1500’. They assembled the SKED litter and then belayed  a simulated patient down with a harness-mounted belay device and occasionally off to alder anchors.  The training started in the alpine on steeper ground where the braking was more of a challenge. A USCG helicopter visited the training area and KISAR members practiced vectoring the aircraft to their location via commands over radios.
