NBC...It is the ski patrol at Wintergreen (named best patrol in the nation) that keeps people safe on the slopes. So now Wintergreen has 2 award winning teams that work closely with one another to keep us safe. Way to go Curtis and crew. You guys rock!

This is how this story should have read:
A team from Wintergreen Fire and Rescue earned first place at a state Fire & Rescue competition in Virginia Beach earlier this month. The members of the team (you should include their names here) regularly train for scenarios which include using ropes and harnessed to go over a vertical slope to rescue people who may be trapped or injured while working, skiing, or hiking around Wintergreen Mountain.(Then you should give details on the scenario at the competition).
--The news story from the reporter is confusing and disjointed. I hate bad journalism.
