Below is an excellent video that shows how the use of short-haul helicopter rescues have improved search and rescues in Grand Teton National Park, thus saving numerous lives over the last several years. The video includes amazing photography and footage - both contemporary and historical. The documentary film was produced by Elizabeth Chambers for the National History Day district competition. It specifically focuses on the Jenny Lake Ranger program.
