The Mountain Rescue Council of Seattle is an extremely active group and does excellent work in rescue and education. They have worked out a well integrated rescue technique involving police, Coast Guard, and a volunteer group of mountaineers. They have used helicopters in many of their rescue operations with great success. The purpose of their active program is to indoctrinate safety consciousness into their area. Wolf G. Bauer, Chairman of the Council has written a good brochure, “Can You Handle an Emergency?” This is a practical booklet about what to do in an emergency in the mountains. It is available from the Mountain Rescue Council at cost ($0.20 each).
