Welcome to the Sounds Like a Search and Rescue Podcast! Also known as SLASR. Join an experienced search and rescue volunteer and his friend as they discuss all things related to hiking and search and rescue in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

This week we are joined by Ben Rossi and Jack Daley of the NH Civil Air Patrol. We had previously covered Civil Air Patrol way back in episode 28. This week we wanted to revisit Civil Air Patrol to learn more about Jack’s experience as a new member and Ben’s role as Squadron Commander of the Concord Composite Squadron. In addition to the Civil Air Patrol topic we will do a deep dive on the updated Search and Rescue data for 2022 - this will include some new insights on yearly trends, causes of incidents and some ideas on ways to potentially limit search and rescue events in the future.
