Civil AIr Patrol Cadets load a "patient" onto a Stokes Basket.
Our Emergency Services cadets took advantage of the great resources at Mill Creek Park on Sunday, 15 November 2015 and carried out the 2015 Gear Hike. The trainees carried a Stokes Basket (rescue stretcher generously donated by the Eagle Joint Fire District) for 9+ miles, 7+hours and the total step count was around 25,000 for the day. They coordinated multiple training classes, found a simulated missing person and spent time building leadership skills, team building and furthering their Emergency Services training.

Great job to everyone who participated.
