From tragedy comes training: California Oregon Regional Search and Rescue

A helicopter comes in for a landing at CORSAR training near Diamond Lake

The search for the Kim family gained national attention in 2006 after the family got lost on an old logging road trying to make their way to Gold Beach.

A helicopter eventually rescued Kati Kim and the family's two children.

James Kim died from exposure on his search for help.

Search and rescue groups later conducted reviews of that mission.
 
"What we did learn is we were unprepared as a region to handle a large scale search operation," said Cpl. Brian Melvin with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
 
Since 2007, 9 counties in southern Oregon and northern California have formed the California Oregon Regional Search and Rescue cooperative, or CORSAR for short.
