On Saturday and Sunday (2/4 and 2/5), Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue coordinators prepared and instructed a 16-hour Mohave County Advanced SAR Academy for new members with Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue. The Advanced SAR Academy includes training on an introduction to technical rope rescues; patient packaging and transporting; K9 teams and how they are used for search and rescues; tools and techniques used for recording tracks, waypoints and sharing that information with Command; helicopter safety and operations with the DPS Western Air Rescue Helicopter crew from Kingman; and, an introduction to swift water rescues. There were also discussions on what happens during a search and what the roles are when searchers are called upon to help. This Advanced Academy completes a second weekend of training for our new searchers and will be used as a foundation to much more involved training that members will be participating in as they become more involved in SAR with their assigned units.
