As technical canyoneering has become more popular, rescues have unfortunately been increasing. Last August, the Coconino County Sheriff’s and Sedona Fire Department SAR teams pulled off one of the most difficult rescues ever in Insomnia Canyon.

In an effort to inform the public about canyoneering safety the Coconino County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue organization teamed up with guidebook author Todd Martin to create a poster that will be widely distributed around Northern Arizona gear shops and canyoneering destinations.

We say Bravo! Thanks for the hard work and we hope to promote this idea to other SAR organizations around the Colorado Plateau.
