URBAN SEARCH AND RESCUE DRILL SET FOR NEXT WEEK

URBAN SEARCH AND RESCUE DRILL SET FOR NEXT WEEK

The Hi-Desert Water District and County Fire Station 42 in Yucca Mesa will host an urban search and rescue team next week for some training we don’t normally see in the desert. For three days, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the urban search-and-rescue team will hold a live trench rescue drill, in which they’ll be faced with a 60-foot long by 2-foot wide by 8-foot deep trench. Team members will have to shore up the trench, so that they can enter safely and conduct a mock rescue in the trench. They’ll be faced with different hazards, including collapse, entrapment, and utility hazards.
