Hiker suffers medical emergency on trail

Posted

A medical emergency on the Ranger Hole Trail brought the Brinnon Fire Department out in response during the early evening hours of Tuesday, Aug. 30.

First responders made contact with a person in their 40s who had been suffering and assessed them.

After cooling down, water, and rest, the hiker was able to walk out without assistance.

Upon arriving at the trailhead, the hiker was assessed again and released with friends who drove the person home.

Brinnon Fire Chief Tim Manly offered this as a reminder for hikers to pack plenty of water and food high in carbs, even on short hikes.

“Even local day hikes can create an emergency. Be prepared,” Manly wrote to the department’s Facebook page.
