Search for Injured Hiker in SF National Forest

Search for Injured Hiker in SF National Forest

ASAR responded for an evacuation of an injured hiker at Lake Katherine. Three people overnighted unexpectedly when a member of their party injured an ankle and was unable to walk out on her own power. ASAR members joined with a Sant Fe SAR team and began hiking up the Windsor Trail toward Lake Katherine early on 9/6/11. In the meantime, after a cold night out the subject's companions were highly motivated to help her limp out to the Cowles Trailhead where State police met her for transport.

A mission was initiated by members of her group who returned to their vehicle after their hike and did not find her. A state helicopter was able to find her and bring her to incident base where she met ASAR team members who there provided assistance.

ASAR Provides First Aid to Santa Fe Concorso

On Saturday, September 24th, 2010, ASAR was thrilled to provide first aid services to the Santa Fe Concorso as part of our Outreach Program. Apart from handing out some water and sunscreen--and bandanging a blister--there were no major incidents, and team members got to see some truly astounding vehicles.

We look forward to doing it again Sept. 23-25, 2011!

He was airlifted out to Santa Fe.
