Three members of the Oliver Osoyoos Search and Rescue were at the top of Baldy on Sunday afternoon to work on their communications equipment. Thanks for the photos Rob Selsing.
Upcoming for Oliver/Osoyoos SAR is our winter campout at the line shack on
Saturday January 23 and Sunday January 24. We will be out there working on
navigation, avalanche transceiver practice, building winter shelter, building a
fire (not as easy to do in the cold and snow as it is in warm dry weather), and
snowmobile operations. This is a training opportunity not just for OOSAR but for
our mutual aid partners in the South Okanagan/Similkameen. We will see members
from Penticton Search and Rescue, Keremeos Search and Rescue, and Princeton
Ground Search and Rescue out for this weekend with us.
We ask people to be aware
that there will be extra vehicles and people around 27km point on McKinney
Road. January 23-24.
