Sherman Volunteer Fire Department has participated in a Search and Rescue Drill.  The training session simulated a lost young man who had wandered off during a fireworks display and was somewhere on the grounds of the Candlelight Farms Airport.  Various area agencies participated in the search using several off road vehicles, a K-9 unit and the New Milford Police Department Eagle 2 helicopter.  The mock patient was located with a simulated tib-fib fracture and was unable to walk.   After the leg was stabilized, the patient was secured in a stokes basket and carried up the steep terrain where he was loaded onto a waiting UTV for transport back to the command center.  Teams were assigned specific search areas and were in frequent contact with the command center.
