On January 3, 2023, at 3:15pm, Gallatin County 911 received a call for a paraglider who was injured on the M Trail.
Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue volunteers from the Valley Section along with American Medical Response, Bridger Canyon Fire, and U.S. Forest Service responded to the M Trail. Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue deployed a hasty team and two secondary teams up the trail. A team of two Bridger Canyon Fire EMT’s established initial contact with the patient.
Search and Rescue teams loaded the patient onto a one wheel litter and brought them directly down slope to the trailhead. AMR transported the patient to the next higher level of care for further evaluation.
Sheriff Dan Springer would like to remind recreationalists that winter weather can result in an emergency situation quickly. It is important to be prepared for the weather and have a safety plan for an unexpected turn of events.
