Sedona AZ (October 2, 2017) – Please join The Sedona Women for our October 11th program which will feature four local volunteers and one amazing dog who conduct search and rescue and recovery missions in the rugged terrain of Red Rock country. Technical rescues are considered dangerous for both civilians and rescuers. Knowledge, skill, dedication and bravery in the face of saving lives becomes monumental as time, weather conditions and other factors play a role in both rescue and recovery efforts. Hear amazing tales involving equipment such as helicopters, ropes and how water rescues differ from land rescues.
