Yesterday, WCSART got together for a “Gear Day” where we inspect crucial pieces of equipment, organize rope bags, and accomplish other tasks around our bay. We also took this opportunity to provide some basic training in rope rescue gear for team members. Operating a successful wilderness rescue team doesn’t begin and end at the trailhead; it involves countless hours of work behind the scenes so we can always stay ready. (Note: All team members present have been fully vaccinated against COVID)
