    What an unbelieveable ,over dramatic waste of resources. 13 million dollars a year for firefighters in Sedona and four of those healthy young men couldn't have carried this person down? Who dreams up these "rescues"? Obviously someone with a very vested interest in glorifing and expanding their bureaucratic empire. I supposes Sedona Fire Dept will soon need their own helicopter for these manufactured dramas or is this already in discussion??
