HCSO Special Services Deputies Train On SnoCat

Humboldt County (KIEM)– Humboldt County Special Services Deputies are gearing up for whatever mother nature may throw their way.

The response vehicle is able to trek through high snow along with other dangerous terrain, to save lives.

Before training this week, special services did not have much flexibility nor extra help with driving the vehicle. But now, the whole special services department is able to lend a helping hand during critical times.

Within the first year the sheriff’s office deployed the machine 6 times and helped rescue 11 individuals.
