Montecito Fire Rescues Hiker on Romero Trail
Source: Montecito Fire Department
Yesterday afternoon Montecito Firefighters responded to a hiker suffering a heat emergency on the Romero Trail.
Along with Santa Barbara County Search & Rescue, AMR Santa Barbara, and a quick assist by Santa Barbara County Air Support Unit, we were able to locate the patient, provide treatment and hike him down the trail in a stokes basket.
Remember to prepare your body for the rigors of hiking in the front country of Santa Barbara. It is steep and rugged here. Take plenty of water and have some type of food on hand for those unexpected needs.
