Search and Rescue Training

ORONO - Experts and volunteers are receiving hands-on training for search and rescue missions this weekend.

The two-day training is a yearly event for the Maine Association for Search and Rescue.

Held this year at the University of Maine, attendance includes the Warden Service, but is primarily made up of civilian volunteers.

Teams learn about new research and hear from highly experienced officials.

In addition, volunteers will spend time practicing for night rescue missions.

This year's training sessions for search and rescue volunteers focus on topics such as man-tracking, land navigation, and treating for frost bite and cold weather injuries.
