In this scenario with a missing hiker in the mountains, the Idaho Air National Guard’s TACPs from the 124th Air Support Operations Squadron are called for assistance with local northern Idaho search and rescue teams. This is the second year of this specific training with state authorities for possible rescue missions involving the IDANG here on March 7-9, 2019. The snowshoes of two ski patrollers and the team of six TACPs trek at a very fast pace, hauling the requested equipment and making their way straight to the location of the initial search team, hiking straight up steep terrain, cutting valuable minutes off the clock.
