Whether it's on land or in the water, the East Penn Search and Rescue volunteers respond to help lost or injured people in the outdoors. “We'll have our trailer, our members there, equipment, and we're there to assist the fire companies because they're the first ones called,” said East Penn Search and Rescue Assistant Chief Michael Tobias Team. With summer crowds coming to Monroe County, the East Penn Search and Rescue Team are brushing up on their skills and preparing for any kind of incident.
