Search and rescue teams to gather at Red River Gorge to practice rescue skills By WYMT News Staff Posted: Tue 7:37 PM, Aug 06, 2019
POWELL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT/WKYT) - Many gather at Red River Gorge each year to hike but Saturday search and rescue teams will take over.
Sister station WKYT reports there will be military aircraft, search and rescue teams and emergency management personnel at the gorge. These teams will work together to practice how to save someone who has fallen off a cliff.
"This is for when it happens, not if it happens, when it happens that we are prepared. It happens more than we would like it to, but we haven't had the intensity to where we need to use so many teams except for recovery," said Lisa Johnson with Powell County Search and Rescue.
Johnson also says if you plan on hiking you should always have a water bottle and whistle with you.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
