Lakes Region SAR is excited to have received a grant to purchase a 2 piece titanium rescue litter and adjustable litter handle system from Cascade Rescue Company. This litter will be stored in Holderness with easy access to the major routes leading to the multiple mountain ranges in our area of operation.
Funding was made possible by the New Hampshire Outdoor Council (NHOC). The NHOC is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1986. It supports backcountry safety education and backcountry search and rescue in New Hampshire. Among its activities are funding assistance for the hikeSafe educational efforts of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and White Mountain National Forest and the provision of grants for training and equipment of search and rescue teams.
