Yosemite Search and Rescue (YOSAR) is the emergency response team for Yosemite National Park. Each year, an average of 250 visitors are lost, injured or die in the rugged environment of Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Search and Rescue (YOSAR) was established in the 1960s to respond to these emergencies with a cadre of trained professionals.
In any given week, team members may be crossing a swollen stream toward a stranded boater, rappelling from a helicopter to a severely ill climber, or extracting an unconscious person from a wrecked vehicle. John will share his experience on how SAR operations function and dramatic descriptions, pictures and video of rescues and recoveries in Yosemite.
Yosemite Theater LIVE! operates April through early November 2013. For information regarding show times, please check the current issue of the Yosemite Guide.
