I Got Rescued! What is Search and Rescue?

King County Explorer Search and Rescue was kind enough to let me film one of their trainings and demoed a lower and raise with me in the litter. SAR systems are fully redundant and have a large safety ratio they stay within. It's interesting to observe how they maintain that the entire time because as a slackline highliner, I'm redundantly safe with a 3:1 safety ratio...most of the time; but occasionally I'm standing near a cliff edge not tied in. SAR doesn't want more people injured when they help someone injured. I also learned how much people give of themselves as it is all volunteer based and you can find out how you can volunteer or donate to KCESAR and Also check out your local unit and get involved.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
