5 Members of Park Ridge CERT( Bennett,Cassettari,Falson,Strewe and Stuebe) that are ISARC trained provided assistance to the Kane County Office of Emergency Management in the search for a missing person.
This multi jurisdictional response included ground, mounted, K9, ATV, and even drone support. This response provided valuable resources to a neighboring jurisdiction resulting in the safe location of Mr. Yohnke.
.A local resident spotted him near the edge of a wooded area. He was transported to a local hospital and is expected to survive.
Park Ridge CERT is fortunate to have worked with the many ISARC member agencies and the men and women who volunteer their time and resources during this multi jurisdictional response.
