Ground Search & Rescue

These members are the heart of our hasty teams. They have completed a 40 hour program consisting of training in the fundamentals of search and rescue, the type of equipment they should consider carrying, basic skills in map and compass and an overview of other aspects involved in Search and Rescue.

Support Personnel

These members may not have completed the Fundamentals program as yet, but may be qualified to assist at the Command Post or Office in town. There is always a need for call-out personnel, radio operators, scribes, and runabouts.

Preventative Search & Rescue (PSAR)

Our members are involved in a variety of community based information programs. We are always searching for persons willing to train and teach our Adventure Smart Program. This program is designed for children of all ages and provides them with basic knowledge and skills to survive in the event they get lost. Members try to maintain a high profile during community events, passing out information and assisting other groups in our area. During many long weekends you will find our members visiting campgrounds with pamphlets and information on our organization.
