Golder Ranch Fire rescuers assist hikers

CATALINA STATE PARK, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Golder Ranch Fire and Rescue was called out for two assists Saturday afternoon.

The first was for a 40-year-old woman who fell while hiking in a canyon near Charouleau Gap in Pinal County. The woman injured her leg. She was helicoptered out and taken an ambulance, Golder Ranch Capt. Will Seeley said.

The first was to rescue a 54-year-old man in Catalina State Park. They met him at the trailhead and helped him with heat-related issues.

"Golder Ranch wants to remind everyone that with the temperatures starting to rise, it is important that when you are out enjoying the weather make sure that you have plenty of water for everyone," Seeley said.

"It is important that you pre-hydrate prior to going out. It is also important to have a cell phone if you are going to go out hiking and to let people know when you expect to be back," he said.

    Wednesday is the final day to weigh in on possible changes to Arizona’s Medicaid program. Since the American Health Care Act was pulled, the Affordable Care Act is still implemented, which means the Medicaid program continues. However, states can use the 1115 waiver to change Medicaid requirements on a state level.
