AMRT mobilized, and shortly after learned that LASD Air Rescue 5 was in route.. Members of the Altadena Mountain Rescue Team met the helicopter at Farnsworth part, where the victim refused medical treatment and signed out against medical advice.. June 19 – As the operation for the dehydrated hiker was wrapping up, another call came in for 4 lost hikers near Panorama Point.. They had entered what appeared to be a trail which quickly deteriorated as they worked their way down the slope.. Unable to continue down or make the climb back up, they made the decision to call for help.. During their ordeal, one of the victims lost his footing and slid 40-50 feet down the slope, suffering lacerations to his hands.. Air Rescue 5 was able to extract the victims from their location and transport them to Farnsworth Park.. AMRT met the helicopter and transferred injured victim to a waiting ambulance.. June 20 – At 12:32pm a call was received regarding an 18 year old female suffering from a dog bite in Eaton Canyon.. Before the team could make it into the field we were informed that she had walked out of the canyon on her own.. June 21 – The page went out at 12:58pm for an 18 year old male who had fallen approximately 20ft in the area of Coyote Canyon.. Los Angeles County Fire were first on scene and attended to the victim prior to the arrival of AMRT.. June 21 – Just after 2pm a call was received for 3 lost hikers who were attempting to get to Dawn Mine.. AMRT and Air Rescue 5 responded and began the search.. Air 5 spotted them in Saucer Branch and began a hoist.. Members of AMRT met the helicopter at Farnsworth and transported them back to their vehicle on Chaney Trial.. June 21 – A call came in just before 9pm to assist Montrose Search Rescue with a search for lost mountain bikers.. As teams began to mobilize we had to divert to a call for 4 lost hikers in Eaton Canyon.. An informant received a call from one of the victims who stated they were lost above the bridge near the waterfall in Eaton Canyon.. AMRT arrived in Eaton Canyon and were able to quickly locate them.. They began their hike in the early evening just before sunset and didn't bring flashlights.. Without a light source in the canyon after sunset they were unable to find their way out.. AMRT walked them down canyon to the team vehicles and transported them to their vehicle near the nature center.. As we were finishing the call, we heard that the mountain bikers were located at Switzers.. Comments.. Hits: 411.. Saturday, 21 June 2014.. A call came in at approximately 7pm for two female hikers stranded ½ mile up from the Mt.. Wilson Toll Road sign in the Eaton Canyon area..

AMRT deployed, heading up the Mt.. Wilson Toll Road in search of the victims.. Eventually contact was made with the victims, and it was determined they were near the fork of the Mt.. Wilson and Winter Creek trails, placing them in the area of Sierra Madre Search Rescue.. SMSAR was immediately contact, while AMRT proceeded as an assist to Sierra Madre..

AMRT responds to call for heat exhaustion, the victims in this case were man's best friend - June 8, 2014.. Monday, 09 June 2014.. A call came in just after 4pm for two dogs suffering from heat exhaustion on the lower Sam Merrill Trail, approximately 1 mile from the trail head.. AMRT responded, and once on scene immediately began tending to the victims.. The dogs were given water and cooled with ice packs.. Once it was determined the dogs were out of danger, they were released back to their owners to make their way down the mountain.. As a reminder to all dog owners as we enter into the hot summer months, bring water not only for yourself but for your four legged companion, and plenty of it.. Heat stroke begins with heavy panting and difficulty breathing, and can also be accompanied with wobbly or uncoordinated gait or movement along with other, more severe symptoms.. Animals should have access to shade and fresh water while outdoors.. If the temperature is very warm, outdoor access should be limited to short periods of time.. Your dog is wearing a fur coat, and temperatures that are bearable to you can become deadly for your dog.. If you plan to hit the outdoors with your pet, do so in the early morning or evening hours when temperatures are cooler and the sun is not directly overhead.. And always bring plenty of water.. Hits: 705.. Stranded Hiker and Lost Mountain Bikers - Memorial Day 2014 recap.. Friday, 30 May 2014.. After a long quiet weekend for AMRT, a page went out just after 4pm for a male hiker stuck on a cliff near the first waterfall in Eaton Canyon.. AMRT responded, sending a crew up canyon to evaluate the situation.. After arriving at the location reported by the informant, it was discovered the victim had made his way down to canyon bottom uninjured.. Later that evening AMRT received a call regarding three missing mountain bikers.. The group of bikers had started their day at approximately 1pm from Mt.. Wilson, in the Angeles National Forest and were expected home around 5pm.. Initially, one of the bikers had contacted the informant letting her know they were running late and would not make the 5pm return time.. Hours later, with no update from and no contact with the bikers, the informant drove to the Altadena Sheriff's Station to report them missing.. AMRT, along with Montrose Search and Rescue, were notified and began to mobilize.. A Los Angeles County Fire Helicopter was called in to assist with the search from the air, utilizing onboard night vision capabilities.. After approximately 25 minutes, the victims were located by the helicopter in Bear Canyon.. A helicopter lowered a paramedic down to the victims and after confirming they were uninjured, began a hoist rescue.. Members of AMRT, along with LASD deputies, met the helicopter and transported the victims back to their vehicle.. The victims had been on a trail that became less defined, and with darkness upon them, they believed they were lost and made the decision to make camp and start a fire to keep warm.. Hits: 916.. AMRT responds to call for lost hikers in Eaton Canyon - May 29, 2014.. While training on the Mt.. Wilson Toll Road Bridge, a call came out for two female  ...   hikers to a family member provided vague details as to their location, stating only that they were in the canyon, near powerlines and could hear a waterfall.. Team members located their vehicles at the Nature Center, verifying that they began their day in the Eaton Canyon area.. The search began up canyon and continued throughout the night.. As of this posting, the search continues.. Information will be updated as it becomes available.. Hits: 642.. AMRT rescues hikers stranded on a hillside in Millard Canyon - February 1, 2014.. The call came in around 6pm Saturday February 1st for 5 hikers lost off trail up Millard Canyon, near Dawn Mine.. The group had decided to try a cross-country route out of the canyon, instead of following the trail, and found themselves in a precarious position on the side of the canyon.. Unable to proceed up the steep slope, and with loose terrain behind them preventing a safe retreat, the group made the wise decision to call for help.. AMRT team members responded to the scene, and once on site determined the victims were in a safe and stable location.. Their position on the canyon slope could be reached via hand-line, negating the need for a complex system.. Two team members were soon with the victims and began the process of escorting the up to the service road above.. Hits: 1008.. Overnight operation for Altadena Mountain Rescue Team end with 4 mountain bikers being found and in good condition - 12/23/2013.. Tuesday, 24 December 2013.. After an exhaustive overnight search that continued into the morning, the four missing mountain bikers were located deep in the Arroyo at the mouth of Bear Canyon.. Having began their day at Mt.. Wilson with a planned destination of the Arroyo behind JPL, the group made a wrong turn and ended up deep in Bear Canyon.. When darkness set in, the group determined the best plan of action was to set up camp and stay the night as the rugged train of Bear Canyon would prove to be difficult to navigate in the dark.. With no way to communicate with their friends and family, and armed with nothing more than their mountain biking gear, the group was able to start a small fire and huddled together for warmth until morning.. Today's operation is a perfect example of why you should always be prepared for any possibility when venturing into the forest.. Luckily this group had the ability to start a camp fire, which more than likely prevented the onset of hypothermia as temperatures dropped into the mid-40's.. It always makes good sense to pack items you may need, such as a light jacked and a flashlight, in the event you find yourself in a similar situation.. And don't always count on cell service in the mountains, especially if you end up deep in a canyon.. Hits: 765..
