September Mock Search

The September full-team training was held in the senior community of Rossmoor in Walnut Creek. A handful of role players got “lost” and/or “hurt” and the team set about to find them. About 80 SAR members showed up to trudge the streets and climb the hillsides around the valley. In the end, all the subjects were found and treated, including an Alzheimer’s walkaway who ventured to the dog park; her desperate husband, who was found on the trails after suffering an angina attack; and two mischievous boys who got themselves in a spot of trouble on a hillside, with one needing packaging and transport. Assistant Sheriff Sean Fawell came out to visit the training and got some insight into the way the Command Post is run.
