Frozen dangers demand sharpened skillset

Josh Larsen, a firefighter lieutenant and member of the Back Country Rescue Team with the Valdez Fire Department, sets up the rope-safety system to help rescue a simulated victim that fell into a glacier crevasse during Alaska Shield 14 here, March 30, 2014. Alaska Shield 14 is an exercise that involves state, federal, military and local agencies, designed to test the response and coordination of the disaster modeled after the 1964 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated much of South Central Alaska including the city of Valdez.
