We verified the location, contact the requester and asked for some photos. Once the information was all on our system the ticket was submitted to our volunteers.
At 2:10 p.m. the ticket was opened to volunteers. By 3:00 p.m., Clive Watson, a local volunteer took over the recovery, contacted the requester and by 5:00 p.m. he got them out safe and sound.
Thanks Clive, awesome job.
