Sep 19 Training Doc

Mark Young presented a brief introduction to Man Tracking and the importance of it’s early use in missing person incidents. The class was one of the best I’ve ever attended, in no small part due to the lead instructors – Bob Bolz and Allen Padgett. Their real world experience was priceless.
On Sunday we were joined by other DNR SAR Team members, including Mark. In addition to the man tracking presentation (made in record time 🙂 ), the other DNR members assisted in a series of tabletop exercises, using actual mission scenarios from past Georgia missing person searches.

gta-yargo09_img1_1Today (Feb 21, 2009) we held our monthly tracking training session at Fort Yargo State Park. We were honored to have a guest tracker, Robert Speiden from the National Awareness Tracking School in Virgina. We arrived around 9am and got dirt time for the next 8 hours. In addition to our dirt time, we also had an opportunity to preview Robert Speiden’s new book, “Foundations for Awareness, Signcutting and Tracking”. Thanks to all those who attended and made this a good training event.
