The Bladen County Sheriff’s Office, Sampson County Sheriff’s Office, Scotland County Sheriff’s Office, NC Highway Patrol,  area firefighters, Bladen County Emergency Services personnel, and state parks personnel have spent the recent week learning about how to track and locate someone who has become lost in the woods.

On Monday night, those in the class spent the evening learning how to locate someone after nightfall in the woods.

Instructor Gary Turlington said the class is an effort to improve service to the county as well as providing valuable skills to law enforcement and firefighters to help them to locate a lost child or adult quickly in difficult terrain.

“No longer are the days of an agency trying to serve the citizens without the inclusion of all available resources,” said Turlington.
