The Rescue of Steven Yang

The Cave & Technical Rescue Team got the call to assist West Valley SAR at approximately 2100 hrs on Sunday, January 4. There was an injured hiker at the Sierra Hut that needed to be evacuated via litter carry. My teammates arrived on scene to find one team with the hiker, and one team heading up the trail. With members of San Bernardino Mountain SAR, Wrightwood, and Valley of the Falls SAR our team of 7 made our way up the hut trail to meet the crew beginning their descent with the patient, Steven Yang of Temple City, CA.

Two, Two, Two Rescues in One!

Bill Koelpfer did not return as planned, so while a wildland fire approached Chino Hills, West Valley SAR was called to search for the missing man on November 15. After several hours of searching additional resources were summoned and the search continued into the morning of November 16. Around 10am a 911 call was received from a hiker in the area reporting that she had heard somebody yelling for help near her location on the Icehouse Canyon Trail. A nearby team was redirected to this location and made contact with Mr. Koelpfer confirming that he was the one shouting and was the missing hiker. The hiker suffered no major injuries and was hoisted from his location around 11:30am by Sheriff's Aviation and flown to Cow Canyon Saddle where he was evaluated by paramedics standing by and r

The Search for Larry Amkraut

Just as we were finishing dinner on Christmas Day, I received a call to assist West Valley SAR in a search for an overdue hiker on Mt. Baldy. Upon arriving at the command post I was assigned to hike the "Hut Trail" to see if our missing hiker was waiting out the storm in the hut. Fortunately the stormy weather broke before my team of 4 entered the field.

Jacquet Search 9/5/08

Yeserday Mark Kinsey and I were inserted at Red Ridge near the summit of Mt. San Gorgonio. Our assignment was to search the Vivian Creek Trail from that point to the bottom. Our missing person suffers from a seizure disorder, and as such, when he recovers from one of these events, he does not remember the events just prior. This meant that our searching required us to search off-trail as well.

Another Look at the Jacquet Search

I was contacted at work about 0900 hours on Thursday, September 4, 2008 to deploy with my live-find dog to assist the Department in their search for a missing Forest Falls man.† Tony Jacquet was last seen going on a hike with his German Shepherd Dog by neighbors on Monday, September 1, 2008.† He was reported missing on Tuesday by one of his neighbors when they noticed his dog coming and going on her own, with no sign of her owner. Their neighbor was last seen walking with his dog east on Valley of the Falls Drive on Monday between 1300 and 1600 hours.

Missing Woman, Hulda Crooks Park, Loma Linda, CA

Sunday, 08-10-08

The San Bernardino Mountain S&R Team was called upon to deploy to a search for a critical missing woman on Sunday, 08-10-08.† The page came very early that morning, about 0200 hours.† My first thought was "I sure hope this is not an early morning training reminder" since the Team was scheduled to take the Department's new Helitac Course put on by Aviation later that morning.† After refocusing on my pager, I realized this was, indeed, an actual search call-out.† I called the Team Commander to let him know I was on my way.

The Recovery of Steve Fossett

My team was called to assist with the recovery effort at the scene of the Fossett aircraft crash. Our job was to grid search the area looking for remains. Also onsite was the NTSB who were investigating the reasons for the crash.

When the call came we were told that personal effects of Mr. Fossett were found, and that we were to look for the crash site. On our way to the command post at Mammoth Airport...

Katz Plane Recovery Day 2 Saturday, September 27, 2008

Itís not everyday you get to sort of ďplan aheadĒ for any sort of search activity. But having known for a week that on Saturday you are going to rappel, ascend, and traverse into a plane wreckage site, you spend some time getting your gear together. I certainly needed to, and was glad I did.

Over-the-Side Recovery at Red Rock Wall, Hwy 18

Wednesday July 30, 2008 about 1530 hours the call comes for an over the side operation. At the time it was not clear whether this was a recovery or a rescue of an injury. Upon arrival at Red Rock Wall on Highway18 just west of Rimforest the following agencies were on scene. Caltrans, CHP, Crest Forest Fire, Rim of the World. net, Forest Service, and SB County Sheriff- (Aviation, Law Enforcement, and SAR ). The hour had become late and several members of the RimSAR technical rescue team were on vacation. San Gorgonio SAR was called as assistance to RimSAR should the need arise and Crest Forest Fire had already set up a mainline and belay station.

Other Activities
New Helitac Course

As most of the Department's S&R Teams are probably aware of by now, Aviation has a new Helitac Course that is being offered - and highly recommended - to all our teams.† The IESARC has been putting the word out that all the Department's S&R teams take this course, involving as many of their team members as possible.

Rope Access in Moving Water

2005-10-08_060.jpgPeople die every year while on rappel. They succumb to hypothermia or drowning. This probably sounds odd in the deserts of southern California. The deaths occur most often in Europe where canyoning is quite popular. This is the sport of descending canyons, usually technical in nature. In Europe the primary focus of canyoning is in wet canyons. In the US we tend to call this canyoneering. We are split between the dry canyons of the Colorado Plateau and wet canyons of the Sierras, Cascades...
