South Lake Tahoe Boy Scouts learn backcountry skills
Boy Scouts from South Lake Tahoe’s Troop 594 learned while working their way through a simulated backcountry injury with the generous help of El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue and CALSTAR.
After discussing backcountry preparedness and equipment, the Scouts treated an adult with a simulated broken leg, made contact with the proper authorities, and assisted in loading the “patient” onto a CALSTAR helicopter. Troop 594 then had the opportunity to learn more about Tahoe Search and Rescue, as well as the CALSTAR helicopter and their mission.
According to Troop 594’s Glen Norling, the troop “thanks both El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue and CALSTAR for a great training opportunity.”
