I snapped some pictures while repacking my gear.
When a call goes out we get gather at the SAR barn, get the description of the situation, then I start dumping the gear that I know I will not need. The SAR trucks have a bunch of supplies in them as well, but this is all the gear that I am ready to carry into the back country as necessary (most of our searching is done from a vehicle)
Being part of the mountain team I have more gear than most. The climbing gear obviously but also the supplies necessary to mark/clear an LZ, stay a night (or more), make a litter, take care of a lost person for a night.
Here are the bags fully packed. Left to right. HPG UTE, Snowshoe bag, Swiftwater bag (an old humvee jack bag)
Swiftwater kit: Force 6 rescue PFD, helmet, throw bag, 9mm wet suit, NRS boots, wool socks, underclothing, duffel bag
