UMASAR In Action

Snow Rescue 03/27/2023

UMASAR personnel responded to an individual who had become stranded in a roadless area after burying his tracked ATV on a hillside. UMASAR personnel responded to the individual's reported location in the unit's tracked UTV. Soft snow made progress challenging with the UTV becoming temporarily stuck at one point. Personnel continued following the individual's ATV tracks and finally located him on a mountain top near a power line corridor. The individual had no survival equipment and was unable to walk in the deep snow. UMASAR personnel transported him back to his vehicle without incident.
