2016 Mid Year Report
After a slow start, 2016 is going to be a record year for BSSAR. With over 23 mission though September, the 27 member all volunteer team has been busy. August was by far the busiest month on record since the organization began providing support in the backcountry. So far this year it is horses 3 people 0. The most life threatening traumatic injuries so far this year was a result of a horse accident where the horse fell on the rider. The most serious medical emergency we dealt with required the team to spend the night with the patient because weather, terrain and the patient's condition did not allow for safe transport. Luckily the weather broke with the sun and a helicopter was able to get in to transport the patient to Bozeman. In both cases the patients made full recoveries.
