Members of both the Cave/Cliff Unit and Support Services participated in a Georgia DNR Sponsored mock rescue at Case Cave in Cloudland Canyon State Park on Saturday. 20 members of CHCRS were in attendance which comprised of nearly half of the total rescuers participating. Walker County Cave/Cliff and Dade County Mountain Rescue also participated in the eight hour exercise. Two mock patients were located, treated and evacuated from the cave. The primary patient was hauled up two pits and transported out the cave in a ferno. 

The mock rescue proved a success and allowed cave rescue resources from the region to work together in a learning environment. The exercise also provided GA DNR with valuable information necessary to develop a pre-plan for executing a future rescue from Case Cave.
