SLO County Search and Rescue Unit trains in Montana de Oro

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Unit held its annual Operations Readiness Drill Saturday in Montana de Oro. The unit had to respond to a fake scenario based on situations they could face while on duty. The idea is to train rescuers to organize, search, and treat victims in an emergency. "Today is a missing 12-year-old girl, as well as her dad. Her dad went out looking for her. She has been found, and we have different people from the unit that portray each missing person," said Tom Bridge, the Incident Commander. The Sheriff's Horseback Unit and Helicopter Squadron also participated in the training day. The Unit meets once a month at the Honor Farm. The meeting is open to the public.
