Arctic SAREX

Canadian Search and Rescue (SAR) Technicians load the simulated wounded soldiers onto a Canadian SAR helicopter. The role players will be transported out of Donnelly drop zone, the location of the simulated downed aircraft, to a medical treatment facility. The simulated response was conducted as a part of a Search and Rescue Exercise (SAREX) in the Arctic region. The Joint Task Force-Alaska, Alaska National Guard, U.S. Army Alaska, Canadian Joint Operations Command, Arctic Search and Rescue Exercise aimed to increase the collective interoperability between the U.S. and Canada.
