CAN BE PART OF IT ALL
START YOUR ADVENTURE
There are many moving parts to a search and rescue operation.
Some involve "field" work - knowing how to use rope systems, physical abilities to get up and down steep slopes or through the underbrush, the willingness and skill to bivouac. This is what people usually think of when they think of search and rescue.
Some involve technical knowledge back at base. Using mapping software, setting up communications systems, keeping the proper documentation in order, managing equipment distibution, and so much more.
Can YOU do this? YES!
There are jobs for people who have physical disabililtes, are older, don't feel comfortable in the woods. YOU CAN HELP! Search and rescue isn't just for fit 25 year olds. Of course, if you are a fit young person, we want you too!
