  • DEC SAR Highlights April 4-11, 2016.

    Another busy week for DEC Rangers. http://www.dec.ny.gov/press/105774.html

    Lost hikers on Mount Marshall.
    Used cellphone to call 911. Hikers were equipped with GPS (mapless version), map, and compass. Provided Rangers with their coords (from their GPS) and were instructed to travel north to intersect trail (I assume the Cold Brook Pass trail). Rangers located them on Indian Pass trail. Walked out in good condition.

    Lost hikers on Slide Brook herd-path.
    Used PLB to get help. Hikers built fire to stay warm. Ranger located hikers next to Slide Brook, 1/2 mile from the lean-to. Walked out in good condition.

    Injured hiker on St. Regis Mtn.
    Used cellphone to call 911. Rangers used litter to evacuate the hiker. Victim was transported to hospital by ambulance.

    Looking for Views!
