Yes thanks for adding this! I got a little spooked yesterday being on hand for 2 heli evacs at a local crag (after over a decade of me going there and never seeing even one injury). I was going to dig this up too, but you saved me the trouble! I have the emergency phone in Hidden Valley marked on my Google Map by the way.

I wonder if we have any trained WFR/EMT among us?

None that I know of though my husband was in SAR and a friend of ours who will be arriving Thursday (he'll get his own site) is currently in SAR. I have had CPR training (years ago, my card has since expired) and I've had very basic first aid /wilderness training at different points in my life (it's about time I refreshed this though). I believe Nina @nsmonkeygirl was also in SAR up where she lives at some point. SAR folks are not required to have WFR/EMT training though.

my sig other, Randy, is part of the Olympic Mountain Rescue team up here outside of Seattle, so there's some additional, well, rescue support. i know he's take the required basic first aid within the past year and possibly advanced as well.
