Summer is a great time to get out and enjoy the wilderness that surrounds us. Last weekend, the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue units were deployed to at least two incidents of lost hikers. Lt. Scott Shelton with the SAR says in both instances, there was a happy outcome, thanks in part to technology that we now take for granted. "GPS units, if you know how to use them, additionally, we do recommend that folks to take a cell phone with them that is fully charged, so that they have to ability, if they do get turned around, to call 911, and hopefully with that we can to a triangulation of their signal, based upon where the towers are located at. Or if they have an enhanced phone that has a GPS system in it, they could actually give us the coordinates of where they are at." Shelton says it is also very important to let someone know where you plan to hike and about what time you should return. And, at many trailheads, there are boxes where you can deposit written plans of your hike, so if something should happen, searchers could have an idea of what your direction was.
