Tonight, a rescue response was dispatched by the Kern County Fire Department for a report of a possible lost hiker suffering an unknown medical condition. Some of the rescue assets that responded included Kern County Fire Helicopter 408 and the Rapid Extrication Module Response also known as REM 52. Engine crews also had to utilize a type 3 and a type 6 fire engines because of the terrain. Ground crews began driving and then hiking into the area. With assistance of the husband, responding crews were able to find the female.
