13 CERT members participated in our second Wilderness Search Exercise in South Mountain Reservation.  Members were given just in time training in how to do a line search, and then performed a line search of a mixed wooded and grassy field for lost dolls.  They also practiced forming a perimeter to enclose a search area to ensure that a lost party did not self evacuate the search area before a K9 search team had arrived and began their search.  We also practiced locating a GPS coordinate on a map of the Reservation and navigating our search teams to that point.
