FSAR monthly training 2-11-09

FSAR caterpillar/litter handling training 2-11-09 in Kingfield. FSAR meets immediately after the Northstar Backcountry team meetings as there are many members who are active in both groups. This training is one component of the BASAR (basic search & Rescue) course that members must complete before being accepted into MASAR (Maine association of Search & rescue).
