SNOWMOBILE RESCUE TRAINING

KNOX COUNTY SNOWMOBILE RESCUE TRAINING

THE RECENT SNOWS MAY BE BEAUTIFUL, BUT WINTER WEATHER CAN BE DANGEROUS TOO.

SOMETIMES IT CAN EVEN BE TOO DANGEROUS FOR SOME FIRST RESPONDERS.

THAT IS WHEN THEY CALL THE KNOX COUNTY SNOWMOBILE RESCUE, THE ONLY TEAM IN THE STATE CAPABLE OF HANDLING DEEP SNOW AND BLIZZARD RESCUES.


TRAINING TOOK PLACE OVER THE WEEKEND WITH GENERAL FIRST AID AND SEARCH AND RESCUE TECHNIQUES.

ORGANIZERS SAY ANYONE WILLING TO TEST MOTHER NATURE SHOULD THINK AGAIN.


"LISTEN TO THE RADIO'S AND TV'S WHEN THEY TELL YOU TO NOT TRAVEL, DON'T BE OUT TRAVELING" SAYS A KNOX COUNTY DEPUTY.

"HAVE GOOD SUPPLIES IN YOUR VEHICLE, HAVE BLANKETS, WATER, EVERYTHING YOU NIGHT NEED SO THAT YOU CAN SURVIVE A LONG TIME UNTIL SOMEBODY DOES COME AND FIND YOU. CAUSE WE WILL COME AND FIND YOU."

THE LARGEST RESCUE THE TEAM EVER PERFORMED WAS A 25 CAR EXTRACTION.

IF YOU EVER NEED THE RESCUE'S ASSISTANCE.... CALL 911.
