Bell Trail Technical Rescue

On May 9 at 12:57 pm Copper Canyon Fire & Medical was dispatched to a technical rescue call in the area of Bell Trail. The information received was the patient had fallen approximately 20 feet. the patient was located several miles up the trail in the wilderness area. It took crews time to make contact with the patient due to an extensive hike into the wilderness. With the help of YCSO a rescue helicopter was sent to assist crews with extricating the patient.
Copper Canyon Fire personnel began medical treatment and prepared the patient to be picked up by DPS ranger. The patient was successfully picked up by DPS ranger and brought to a landing zone to be transported by a medical helicopter. Yavapai County Sheriffs Office and Copper Canyon Fire set up and utilized a unified command system to coordinate the efforts and the YCSO Search and Rescue team was used to secure and set up a landing zone for all the helicopters.
