On 6/23/2020 at 6pm we launched a call out in response to a 911 call by a man who was riding his dirt bike near Red Ridge in the Palisades area. He was tired and stuck and unable to make his way out. While in transit, we received another call to 911 for a separate dirt bike rider in the Heise/Burns Creek area who had wrecked on his bike and was losing consciousness. We were able to split the teams and run successful searches for both. The first man was located by ground teams who helped him recover his bike and hike back out. The second man was flown by Air Idaho to EIRMC with some significant injuries. We greatly appreciate their assistance in locating and retrieving him.
