Fernie SAR today worked with the RCMP and neighbouring SAR groups to search for two teens reported missing overnight.

A combination of air and road searches eventually revealed them to be stuck on Hartley Road, where a member of the public assisted them.

They have now been reunited with their family.

Fernie and Sparwood SAR responded to rescue two cliffed-out sledders, reported to the RCMP on Saturday night.

They were well-prepared and were able make themselves comfortable for the night.

Poor flying conditions this morning meant that longline was not possible so two Fernie SAR techs were dropped off and toured in to them and then guided them out to where they could be picked up by snowmobile.

It’s time to get batteries in the transceiver and make sure your software is up to date! If it’s getting older maybe it’s time for a compete replacement.

Give your shovel and probe a good look over. Crack or frayed wires? Replace!

What else do you do to get thinking about your winter avalanche safety?
