GSAR "Cold Weather" Training

held 1/18 at Whittingham Wildlife Management Area in Fredon, NJ. We deployed our new GPS units to allow members to familiarize themselves with their operation. Two hasty teams were fielded and redirected to the patient's location. Upon meeting up, we hunkered down for a winter bivy exercise (are you carrying enough survival supplies in your winter search pack?) and rotated people's roles in a small group self evacuation back to the parking lot.
