ESCANABA – Volunteers from the Delta County Search and Rescue (DCSAR) Team are participating in the 2013 Logging Congress in Escanaba on Sept. 6-7. The event is being held at the U.P. State Fairgounds.
The search and rescue team will have their equipment on display and be available to answer questions from the public about search and rescue operations in the community. DCSAR Director Mike Sands said many of the team’s cases over the years have involved locating missing individuals through difficult terrain and heavy forested areas.
During the event, members of the team will be selling raffle tickets to raise the funding needed to purchase rescue equipment and to send volunteers to specialized training.
The public is encouraged to stop by the Delta County Search and Rescue Team’s booth during the Logging Congress.
