Injured Runner on Romero Canyon Trail
This morning Montecito firefighters responded to the Romero Canyon trail for an injured runner. Due to the poor trail conditions, the decision was made to hoist the patient into Santa Barbara Fire helicopter 308 for transport to the hospital.
Santa Barbara County Search and Rescue also hiked up to the patient with our personnel to help with packaging and transporting the patient back down the hill, if necessary. Another safe and efficient rescue coordinated between the three agencies. Be careful when out on the trails, at this time of year the conditions change almost daily.
