SPOT activated over a bear incident

Town of Hardenburgh in Ulster County

Wilderness Search:
On Aug. 9 at 9:14 p.m., an operator from the International Emergency Response Center contacted the Forest Ranger Emergency Line for an activation received from a SPOT beacon. There were no messages received, only the SOS beacon. Coordinates placed the beacon at the west side of Alder Lake. At approximately 10:29 p.m., Forest Ranger Stratton arrived at Alder Lake and hiked in to locate the person. At 10:50 p.m., contact was made with the owner of the beacon, who set the beacon off because of a bear in her campsite eating her food. Ranger Stratton educated the camper on proper food storage and no further action was needed
