AMRT saves the day, and the dogs - March 19, 2015

This write-up is from a call from a couple of weeks ago........

A call came in to the headquarters at approximately 7:00pm for a female with 2 dogs stuck on the side of a mountain in Millard Canyon. AMRT was able to establish cell phone contact with the victim and determine her approximate location near Saucer Branch.

Team members were sent to Sierra Saddle in an attempt to locate the victim from above and establish communication while additional members entered Millard Canyon to search for the victim. Cell phone service was intermittent in the canyon; however, we were able to communicate via text letting her know we were in route. The victim conveyed that she was under a tree off the trail and would likely not be seen from above, but should be clearly visible from canyon bottom.

Voice contact was quickly established by the team members making their way up from velow, shortly thereafter locating the victim approximately 50 feet off of canyon bottom on a scree slope. A hand line was set up allowing team members too safely get her and her dogs to canyon bottom. Assuring all were safe and uninjured, the victims were walked out.
