Flying To The Rescue At Zion National Park

Alternate Text
Zion National Park rangers often rely on helicopters to get them to rescues/NPS

Curious about what a "short-haul" is? Wonder how rangers get to remote areas in the parks to perform rescues? Check out this short video from Zion National Park.

The video stems from a rescue in which rangers responded to an injury in Imlay Canyon that required a helicopter short-haul. These types of rescues tend to be highly effective, but put many people at risk. They also take time, and the injured party had to spend the night in the canyon before the operation could be completed.
