We realize that it is just the beginning of summer, but it is aways a good time to ensure that your equipment is up to date.

Rope training continues. Last week we practiced building a highline. This allows the team to use a lot of the skills they have in one sitting. We did this small scale to allow easy access to both ends. Stay tuned for when we go full-scale later this summer!!

Fernie Search and Rescue is in Kimberley, British Columbia.
Fernie SAR was called out to assist Kimberley SAR with the rescue of an injured hiker.

A 35 year old man, celebrating Father's Day with his father, fell in snow on Bootleg Mountain and slid at speed into a tree, sustaining a serious lower leg injury.

Fernie SAR’s CDFL team, working with Bighorn Helicopters, was able to rescue the man and his father and deliver them to Kimberley SAR for further treatment and transport to hospital.

All 3 Fernie SAR CDFL Technicians who participated are fathers and were happy to help make this Father's Day end right.

This evening Fernie SAR was tasked to assist BCAS with an injured mountain biker on the Swine Flu trail. The rider had hit a tree and suffered injuries to her pelvis, back and head. Using ATVs and hiking in, 4 FSAR Techs were able to access the subject. 8 more FSAR techs joined and transported the subject to BC Ambulance.

We are grateful to the two bikers who came across her and called 911 and kept her company until help arrived.

We would like to remind everyone that response times are longer these days due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And that now is a good time to make sure you are taking it easy out there on the trails and water.
