In order to successfully complete the pack test, participants must “carry a 35LB pack a length of 3.5 miles in the time of 1 hour and 45 minutes” (Tooele County Sheriff’s Patrol, Bylaws, r. 27 August 2019).
We are encouraging all regular members to complete this pack test NLT than Saturday 09 MAY. Pack test can either be completed individually or at the squad level. If test is to be completed at the squad level, squad leaders must ensure that physical distancing (unless members of the same household) is maintained, (i.e. staggered/interval start). Squad leaders must also ensure adherence to the preventive measures outlined by the CDC to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
If completed individually the honor system will apply when it comes to recording pack weight. Participants should provide a photo of their GPS unit indicating distance traveled and completion time for the course. Some individuals who have already finished their pack test for the year have included a snapshot of their watch face in stopwatch mode, as well as start of course, midpoint and course completion photos. Please coordinate the completion of your pack test with your squad leader and provide them with evidence of completion. Squad leaders please ensure that the 2nd vice is provided with the completed pack test information for all the members of your squads. I will update the training records as soon as I receive the information.
If completed as a squad, it will be the responsibility of the squad leader to provide the 2nd vice with the evidence of completion information from your team members.
Please send pack test completion info to email@example.com. Text or call the 2nd vice at 435-241-2808 with any questions you might have.
