Regional Wilderness Rescuers Receive Training
New Jersey Search and Rescue (NJSAR) will be hosting an Advanced Wilderness Rescue course presented by Peak Rescue Institute. The training will be conducted April 24-27 at the Mt Allamuchy Scout Reservation in western New Jersey.

Headquartered in Mahwah, NJ, NJSAR is a familiar face at most searches throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York (including the Adirondack region). The all volunteer organization is comprised of more than 60 trained rescue personnel and is a full member of the Mountain Rescue Association.

Peak Rescue Institute (PRI) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to training those volunteers and professionals who are actively involved in the rescue community. Because of the generous donations given to PRI, they are able to provide this training at no cost to NJSAR.

The training will be attended by 16 rescuers from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont. Training will focus on backcountry techniques, stressing attention to safety while using minimal equipment.
