3 MERIDIAN Octber The Greatest Sacrifice IN MEMORY OF BRUCE HARROLLE August 14, 1972 Octber 13, 2008 Arizna Department f Public Safety medic Bruce Harrlle, center, wrks t assist an injured patient during a 2004 missin. Pht curtesy Dnna French, Desert Blm Phtgraphy. It is with great sadness that we reprt the line f duty death f Arizna Department f Public Safety (DPS) Air Rescue's Officer-Paramedic Bruce Harrlle. Arizna DPS is an Ex-Offici member f the Muntain Rescue Assciatin (MRA). Accrding t the Officer Dwn Memrial Page, at abut 2:40 p.m. n Octber 13 th, the Department f Public Safety Air Rescue Ranger Helicpter based in Flagstaff respnded t a request frm the Sedna Fire Department and the Yavapai Cunty Sheriff s Office t assist with a search and rescue missin f tw stranded and dehydrated hikers n Bear Muntain in the Bell Rck area. At abut 3:18 p.m., Officer/Paramedic Harrlle had laded ne hiker and was escrting the secnd patient int the chpper when he was struck by the helicpter's rtr blades and fatally injured. Bth hikers were flwn t safety. Harrlle wrked fr 9 years with Arizna DPS, and 6 with the Air Rescue prgram. He was a recipient f the Department s prestigius Distinguished Award fr his rle in the Lewis Prisn hstage situatin in He was als the recipient f numerus letters f cmmendatin fr his rle in varius rescues and lifesaving peratins. He leaves behind a wife, Angela, and tw yung children, daughter Addisn, age 4, and sn Justice, age 2. He is als survived by bth f his parents. MRA Past President Tim Kvacs has wrked with Harrlle. Accrding t Kvacs, Bruce was a fine man, a passinate paramedic, and a cnscientius external lad Air Rescue technician. In an electrnic Guest Bk created fr his wife and children, Harrlle s childhd friend Sarah Hawley said I always used t tell Bruce that he was a super her because he flew thrugh the air and rescued cmplete strangers. Beneath that shirt I swear there was a huge B in a triangle. He saved everyne-frm animals t peple - n ne was beneath his saving grace. I am cmfrted nly by the fact that he died in the midst f ding smething he lved. Beynd that, I am hurting terribly fr his family and friends. Bruce Harrlle made the ultimate sacrifice... he gave his life in service t tw peple he'd never met. There is n higher calling, and his place shall be amng thse wh have given the ultimate expressin f selflessness. As the Meridian ges t press, MRA Hnr Guard members are assembling t hnr Harrlle at his memrial service.

MRA PATCH HEADS TO SPACE As this editin f Meridian ges t press, Shuttle Astrnaut Jhn Grunsfeld is preparing fr his sixth jurney t space abard the Shuttle Atlantis, a flight during which he will als engage in three space walks t repair the Hubble Space Telescpe. On day 2 we gt a hel ride in Ysemite's Bell SAR hel, with ur main fcus a line search frm the wreckage t where the shirt had been fund, 0.6 miles away. We searched carefully t that site, then shifted dwnhill 100 yards and searched a parallel track back t the wreckage. Once there, we did anther detailed search f the area. Because f threatening weather and the cncern base camp had fr ur safety, we were flwn ut arund 3 pm. Iny SAR had an analgus assignment frm the wreckage t the site where the ID was fund, and back. While we were n ur secnd day's search assignment, Ysemite SAR spent the day cllecting and lading up the wreckage t be flwn ut by a cntract hel. I was amazed t see hw clean they left the site, with nly a few pieces abut the size f a silver dllar r smaller remaining.

In respnse t my specific questins, the Madera Cunty deputy sheriff wh was running the search In a recent article in Outside, Grunsfeld was asked if he ever gets bred in space. His answer? On my mst recent trip up Denali, there were these huge seracs and unbelievable vistas, and I was thinking, I dn't have t fly in space. There are s many beautiful places n Earth Then I get back int city life and I'm like, Yeah, I need t g t space again.

Cmedian Rusty DeWees The Lgger Pht by Neil VanDyke All returned t the cnference htel fr the pen bar, which lead t a very entertaining Petzl Headlamp Search Cmpetitin. Saturday, June 21 The third day f the cnference cnsisted f an adventure tur n Mt. Mansfield, Vermnt s highest peak at 4,393 ft. The tur cnsisted f a 5.5 mile hike cmbined with three skill statins: Statin 1 Five glf balls and fifteen wden glf tees were hidden in an area 20 m wide by 50 m lng. Each team was given 15 minutes t find as many as pssible. Statin 2 Teams were timed t setup a belay system and lwer an injured subject 100 m dwn a lw angle descent, then acrss, and back up an adjacent slpe. Statin 3 On ne f the lcal hiking trails, the trail cuts thrugh a huge bulder that has split in tw. Nicknamed the lemn squeeze, teams were timed t transprt a litter thrugh the bstacle. Back t the bar, which led t Rick Lrenz s renditin f a Clancy Brthers classic t hnr the visit f Paul Whiting frm Ireland. Fllwing that, a zip line tk the place f the traditinal rappelling ff the rftp.

Fran was nly the secnd female president f the MRA (the first female president was Judy Hanna in 1980). Fran passed reigns f the rganizatin t the incming president - Charley Shimanski. A nice traditin tk place as Fran presented Charley with the MRA cmpass, t help Charley keep the MRA n the track set ut by its funders. This reprt was filed by Paul Whiting; Develpment Officer f the Irish Muntain Rescue Assciatin with sme editing by Charley Shimanski after all, in Ireland, the wrd stretcher is a verb. While we say transprt a litter Paul says stretcher a casualty.

10 MERIDIAN Octber RESOURCE TYPING AND CREDENTIALING By Mike Vrachek The MRA is a member f a natinal wrking grup that is refining the current FEMA Resurce Types and develping individual credentialing criteria fr SAR. The basic cncept behind this prject is t identify a standardized apprach fr identificatin f teams and their members that can be deplyed in time f disaster and supprt federal, state, and lcal respnse effrts. Envisin fr a mment a majr earthquake affecting an area such as Yellwstne Natinal Park at the height f the summer turist seasn, where destructin f bridges r triggering f landslides cut ff campgrunds and trails, stranding hundreds f campers and hikers in the back cuntry. Or cnsider the Salt Lake valley where there are numerus husing develpments and recreatin areas lcated n slpes and ridges that culd be cut ff frm nrmal Fire Department based rescue services, which might be verwhelmed with building cllapses in the dwntwn areas. In bth cases, SAR teams capable f perating in rugged terrain under austere cnditins might be requested by the Incident Cmmand structure, especially where there is a prlnged respnse and relief fr lcal resurces is needed. By having a standardized resurce type, i.e., a Muntain SAR r a Wilderness SAR team, with varying degrees f capability (Type I, II, III, r IV); requesting agencies will be able t assess the situatin and determine what categry and type wuld be best suited t respnd t the peratin. The basic set f Resurce Types has been established fr SAR and can be viewed at t.shtm. Resurce typing is vluntary and nrmally accmplished by determining what categry(s) and type yur team is capable f; and ntifying yur lcal and/r state emergency management r hmeland security agency. MRA Plicy is the basic framewrk that we envisin teams will use t meet the FEMA Muntain and Wilderness SAR typing criteria. We recgnize that ur teams are unique in that we tend t perate in sme f the mst extreme envirnments, and mst teams have taken n the challenge f becming accredited t reginal requirements under Plicy 105. As a bdy, we have the ability t prvide a tremendus capability t respnd t majr disasters such as nted abve, and Plicy was develped t bridge the gap between regin accreditatin and natinal standards criteria. The FEMA wrking grup is currently develping standards fr credentialing f individual SAR respnders. This represents a tremendus challenge due t the diversity f rles and respnsibilities within the verall SAR cmmunity. The MRA is supprting the wrking grup t examine what knwledge, skills, and attributes wuld be needed fr thse members respnding with a Muntain r Wilderness SAR team. Again, Plicy cntains the basic framewrk that we feel is apprpriate fr teams that wish becme invlved, while allwing the team sme leeway in addressing what they feel fits their rganizatinal structure. We can nly hpe that this effrt results in the SAR cmmunity being better prepared fr catastrphic incidents - which we hpe never ccur. All f us have seen the graphic images f suffering and despair that accmpany a disaster r majr emergency. Mst f us have at ne time r anther desired t help, but were nt sure hw t g abut it. Sme have felt the frustratin f vlunteering t help, nly t be turned away. The SAR wrking grup is addressing sme f the issues that are ging t have t be reslved in rder t imprve the natin s ability t respnd t disasters. As the largest representative f SAR teams in the United States, the MRA is wrking t prvide as much input as pssible t this endeavr. AT THE HELM OF NPS EMERGENCY SERVICES This past June, the Natinal Park Service (NPS) appinted Dean A. Rss t serve as its latest Branch Chief f Emergency Services. The NPS Branch Chief supprts Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Search and Rescue (SAR) fr the entire Natinal Park Service. Dean takes ver frm Dan Pntbriand, wh returned t the field when he tk an assignment as Sequia District Ranger, Sequia & Kings Canyn Natinal Parks. Dean Rss has an eclectic histry in many areas; but it is the cmbinatin f his previus experience that makes him an impressive chice fr the tp NPS emergency management pst. Rss has a prfessinal career in terrestrial and satellite cmmunicatins, and built a successful business in the field, befre selling his business t pursue ther interests.

11 MERIDIAN Octber Thse ther interests are t wide and varied t list each f them here, but suffice it t say, he s develped a resume that lks like a Wh s Wh f emergency prgrams. Dean has been invlved in pre-hspital EMS since the 1990 s but it was the tragic events f September 11th 2001 that brught it all tgether. After the 9-11 attack n the Wrld Trade Center, Rss wrked at grund zer fr many mnths. This assignment illustrated sme serius challenges t make public health and emergency respnse his key fcus. Rss then mved t the natin s capital. Starting at the Office f Emergency Respnse, he was ultimately called ut by Secretary Thmpsn himself t design and build the Security Operatins Center at HHS. The prject tk just five mnths, and while the final cst was $3.7 millin, that was $1.3 millin under budget. After Rss built the Center, Secretary Thmpsn made him Directr f it; prviding a key rle in the respnse t Sudden Acute Respiratry Syndrme (SARS) and the beginning f what wuld becme a natin-wide effrt t prepare fr a ptential pandemic. During this assignment, Dean was requested by the Wrld Health Organizatin t cllabrate and crdinate the develpment f their cmmand center in Geneva, Switzerland. His peratins center designs and management cncepts are nw in 17 peratins center arund the wrld. Cmpleting that assignment, Rss went n t serve as Deputy Directr f Emergency Services fr three years at the Indian Health Service. While he is a diver, a pilt, a firefighter, and a technical rescuer, Dean Rss is the first nn-law Enfrcement Ranger t take the psitin at the Natinal Park Service. N stranger t the plitics that plague agencies inside the beltway, Dean Rss describes himself as a man wh likes t empwer, nt put up stp signs. If yu re fllwing me, he says, yu d better hld n t my belt. N kidding. Already, under his leadership f 90 days, Dean Rss has established the Natinal Park Service as the g t agency fr the new Natinal Respnse Framewrk a prgram designed t mbilize federal persnnel in disaster respnse under Emergency Supprt Functin #9. Rss and staff frm parks acrss the natin recently demnstrated the value f Park Service Rangers in disaster respnse during the 2008 hurricane seasn. We re light, we re fast, we re mbile and yu dn t need tw semi-trucks behind us t carry ur gear. Althugh he cmmands an ffice f ne, Rss jb is a critically imprtant element f the Natinal Park Service (NPS). He is respnsible fr the EMS prgram fr the entire Natinal Park Service as well as the SAR prgram which includes technical rescue, swiftwater and land SAR. Cnsidering the NPS perfrms 4,500 SAR peratins a year, this is quite an assignment. But spend just five minutes with him, and yu ll quickly see that he is up t the task. If yu re ever in Washingtn D.C. stp by t visit Dean, and take him ut fr a cup f cffee. But ne piece f advice hld n t his belt. MRA FILM PROJECT By Rick Lrenz In the fall f 2007 a 19 minute vide was made f the annual meeting f IKAR, the Internatinal Cmmissin f Alpine Rescue. It was later shwn at the January 2008 MRA meeting and the DVD was distributed free f charge t all vlunteer muntain rescue teams in Nrth America. The vide was made pssible by three cmmercial spnsrs and was prduced by Internatinal Research Assciates (INREAS) f Tacma, Washingtn. At the MRA annual meeting in Stwe last summer, a prpsal was made fr INREAS t prduce a DVD f early MRA histry in the Pacific Nrthwest, including the funding f MRA in June f The DVD wuld be shwn at Munt Hd at the 50th Anniversary celebratin next summer, and 200 cpies wuld be prvided t the MRA. The prpsal was accepted with the understanding that the prject wuld be cmpleted at n cst t MRA. A private fundatin prvided funding fr the MRA Histry Dcumentary last July, filming was cmpleted in September, editing and prductin are nw underway. Key peple in the histry f MRA were interviewed, including Dick Pley (the first MRA president), Dee Mlenaar, Gerge Sainsbury, and Wlf Bauer, ne f the funders f Seattle Muntain Rescue Cuncil. Additinal filming was cnducted at Munt Hd in July at a reunin f sme f the riginal funders f MRA, including 96 year ld Hank Lewis, a legendary figure wh
