Should Lake Mead Accept Private Rescue & Recovery Assistance?

There is quite an interesting article I found in the Las Vegas Review Journal about the National Park Service refusing the assistance of private rescue and recovery experts at Lake Mead.

There are two very different arguments presented in the article penned by Henry Brean — one where people who want help say that “other national parks welcome outside help, but not Lake Mead for some reason” and the other where the park service says they are “not willing to risk their lives for something we’ve already deemed too dangerous for our own people”.

And a sidebar fact listed in the article is also interesting…it’s that since 2000, 112 people have drowned at Lake Mead and 107 of those bodies have been recovered (without outside help).
