The CCSOSAR Ropes Team trained today on current techniques for patient packaging on stokes. A stokes is the special basket used to transport an injured person out of remote areas. A ropes rescue team would be used if a person needs to be brought up from the bottom of a cliff, ledge, or any situation an angle would make it difficult for a team to get the person out safely.
Every year, the Clark County Sherrif’s Office organizes Santa’s Posse, where people get to spread holiday cheer by helping to deliver toys and food across Clark County. CCSO Search and Rescue volunteers helped load boxes of food into the line of cars filled with gifts for multiple families. This year over 1000 families received toys, bikes, and boxes of food with gift cards from Winco for a turkey or ham. Thank you to all the people that helped make this happen.
