Training in Wilderness First Aid is essential for members in Search and Rescue. With urban first aid, help can be received within minutes. But for those who need first aid while miles out on a trail, knowing how to assess and treat a person who has broken an arm, or is suffering from hypothermia are skills every SAR member needs to know. CCSOSAR members base their wilderness first aid standards where the Patient Assessment Triangle is used.
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.
