Sean Fawcett, Technical Architect – Vertiba employee since 2015.
Resident of Tucson, AZ
Sean has been involved with the
Southern Arizona Rescue Association (SARA) for 11 years, participating in over 600 missions. SARA is an all-volunteer resource for the Pima County Sheriff’s department whose members are highly traine
d search and rescue volunteers donating thousands of hours of time to missions including wilderness searches, technical rescues, and participating in ongoing training.
In this picture, Sean is doing a “Short Haul” rescue. A short haul rescue is used when a patient is injured in a place where it would be too dangerous or too long for a ground evacuation. The helicopter lowers a line that the rescuer and patient connect to. They are transported under the helicopter as shown. And yes… That is Sean hanging from the helicopter with a patient in the gurney.
Sean is not only an asset to his community, he’s also a fantastic member of our technical team!
