Notes from the Heart...Search & Rescue                             

None of us like the idea, but there may be
a time when the average citizen may feel
compelled to aid in a Search & Rescue
operation -- particularly in our area during
late fall, when hikers often get lost in the
wilderness in an unexpected snowstorm.
A course in the basics of search and rescue
could make all the difference for a volunteer

two-day introductory course on November 20-21 in Fairlee, VT will be taught
by the staff of SOLO, nationally recognized leaders in the field of wilderness
medicine & rescue and the North American Rescue Institute (NARI). This course
will cover the basic principles of rescuer preparedness, search management,
leadership, some basic backcountry medicine, map & compass skills, ropes and
knots , packaging and carrying litters.

Course is appropriate for beginners who would like to learn more about basic
rescue skills, or those who would like to refresh skills. EMT’s can receive 16 hours
of National Registry continuing education credits. Fee; $215 includes lodging,
meals and course, day student rate: $195. Preregistration is required. For more
information and a
printable registration form visit Aloha Foundation/Hulbert.  ♥

The Frugal Yankee Tip of the Week

Keep a regular old plug phone around. One that doesn't need electricity to work.
It uses electricity within the phone lines. So if things get dicey and there is no
power and the cell is dead, you can probably use that old phone to keep in
contact with the world.
