Klamath County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team members spent Friday July 3, 2020 performing community outreach on Mt. McLaughlin. KCSO SAR members talked with hikers, distributed water, and helped educate people on the need to be prepared when hiking the area.

KCSO SAR Commander Brian Bryson: “The public education is vitally important. The conditions on Mt. McLaughlin can change rapidly and can catch people off guard if they’re unprepared.” Also, the public needs to be aware that the bridge from the upper parking lot is out and to use caution.

In addition, KCSO SAR Team members Michael Schaaf, George Mulleneix, Vicky Jack, and Alden Goebel also worked to clear the trails of deadfall trees. This effort was in cooperation with Jackson County Search and Rescue, who performed community service work on July 4th and 5th
