A Colorado Hoist Rescue Team Member is hoisted on to a Colorado Army National Guard UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter during proficiency training at Buckley Air Force Base, Aurora, Colorado Sept. 25, 2019. The CHRT possesses specialized equipment and knowledge, allowing them to save lives and minimize suffering when adventurers get lost or stranded in Colorado’s high country. The CONG, through the CHRT, is responsible for almost all hoist extraction rescues in Colorado, saving 21 lives during 2019 alone. (U.S. Army National Guard photo by Staff Sgt. Joseph K. VonNida)
