Search and Rescue volunteers from the Mohave County Sheriff's Office recently received high-angle rescue rope training in the high altitude of the Hualapai Mountains. According to Sgt. Rob McEuen, SAR commander, the Hualapai Mountains are a great setting for training because of the steep terrain and difficult switchbacks, especially when using a short-haul operation which transports victims to safety. The Technical Rope Rescue Team is also trained in rappelling out of helicopters or down a cliff.
