Planning Your Escape Route

For the last several days I have been working with my Search and Rescue (SAR) team on a forest fire in the Pacific Northwest.

Getting these hikers out safely has been a priority. Many hiking groups were met by local Ranger District staff well away from the fire to plan their exit. Others self extracted.
