  • MCFR USAR assist with missing girl

    MARION COUNTY, Fla. (April 15, 2005) – 10 members of Marion County Fire-Rescue’s (MCFR) Technical Rescue team under the direction of Team Leader Captain Dennis Cronmiller deployed just after 9:00 a.m. today to Hillsborough County to help law enforcement agencies find 13-year-old Sarah Lunde. MCFR received the deployment request and orders late Thursday from officials with the State’s Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee.

    Sarah’s mother reported her daughter missing on April 11 just after 1:00 p.m. according to Debbie Carter of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO).

    MCFR’s Technical Rescue team, having the manpower and equipment capabilities to conduct wilderness search and rescues, will comb a three mile radius of dense vegetation in cooperation with HCSO deputies, 18 search and rescue canine teams volunteers, members of CART (Child Abduction Response Team) and Team Adam of the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

    MCFR’s team is expected to return to Marion County Monday.

    MCFR formed this Technical Rescue team in 1996, becoming one of the few departments with an established team in North Central Florida. Team members take hundreds of hours of specialized training to get certified in Technical Rescue, which encompasses several disciplines including advanced vehicle extrication, rope rescue, cave rescue and confined space rescue just to name a few.
