  1. Huh. I was just there after dark this evening. Tide was low, low, low so high tide had nothing to do with this incident. Neither was this a swift water rescue. “Swift water rescue is a subset of technical rescue dealing in white water river conditions. ”

  2. The ‘water rescue’ team is referred to as ‘Swift Water Rescue’, even if it is rescuing people from apparently calm water. They are trained to rescue in any type of water situation. Stormy seas, and/or white water rapids. And there can be ‘white water’ in the ocean too.

  3. Far too many rescues going on in our area. I cannot think of a time in my life where so many folks who head out hiking or our ocean who haven’t the slightest idea of what they are doing. Hiking with no water. Hiking with no food. Hiking after dark. Hiking off trail. Surfing/swimming/boating without knowing how to swim. Going in the water after dark. Surfing above their level. I wish I could scream at some of these folks, especially the ones who insist on getting high or taking LSD, and then heading out onto our trails or ocean. These are the folks who got trophies for losing and want everyone else to take care of them when the s**t hits the fan. “Oh, let me get wasted and walk along the cliffs late at night…..what could go wrong?”

  4. Sure, blame the victims. And someone knows for sure rescues are for people who are “high”. Really? I’ve known victims who were trail experienced and had accidents, needing rescue. And that was up to 50 years ago (they weren’t “high”).

Wrong Emergency Notifications?
