High-Angle Rescue

A team of employees practicing rescuing someone from a cliffside
Search and Rescue (SAR) team participating in training by practicing rescuing someone who feel from a steep ledge.

Thankfully it's not a common occurrence, but one of the "high profile" services we provide is high-angle rescue. When people drive off steep roads or fall from ledges, our Search and Rescue (SAR) team springs into action. The cross-divisional team trains throughout the year to make sure they are ready for any situation.

"Every high-angle rescue is like solving a complex puzzle. Rarely are they the same. It's one of the more challenging and rewarding parts of the job, and there's no better feeling than helping someone out of a bad situation." - SAR Coordinator Gabe Gassman
