Every year, thousands of people get lost in the great outdoors and are eventually found by a search-and-rescue team.
Those SAR teams aren’t just stumbling around, hoping to find people. They consist of highly trained, specialized personnel.
Troop 777 in Northville, Mich., got a little taste of what it takes to be part of a SAR team at a recent event led by public safety pros. Working towards their Search And Rescue merit badge, the Scouts searched a (pretend) partially collapsed building for survivors, swept a parking lot for a set of lost keys, and used the same kind of equipment used by SAR professionals.
