During the week of May 6th, 2013 the Henderson County Rescue Squad hosted a Managing Land Search Operations class sponsored by North Carolina Emergency Management and the Blue Ridge Community College.

The participants represented a wide range of emergency services organizations from Henderson County:

A special thanks to Todd Brown of NC Emergency Management for his assistance with the course.
