Our region offers many quiet places in woods and mountains to get away from it all. And sometimes, that's a problem.
Because people can get lost in the backcountry, and need help finding their way back to civilization. That's why Search and Rescue exists.
Each county in our region has an SAR team they can call in an emergency, and they partner through the CORSAR task force, California-Oregon Search and Rescue.
We visit with Jeanette Sinclair, a volunteer on Coos County's SAR team, and Sgt. Shawn Richards, a coordinator for the Jackson County team.
