So that others may live

Why become involved with Search and Rescus (SAR)

  • SAR members join to help their community, they know if it were someone they loved, lost out there with weather approaching fast they would want the best possible teams to find them.
  • Flexible hours -4am call outs, 6am call outs, midnight, noon, etc.
  • No Gym membership needed -plenty of good excersize hiking, climbing, etc.
  • Travel -We explore anywhere the subjects get lost, beautiful mountains, deserts, valleys, steams, etc.
  • Family -We train together, search together, and have fun in the off times. You are never alone, we got your back.
  • Flexible - It does not matter if you are an eagle scout, climbed K2 blindfolded, or an office manager, graphic designer. We are a team, all the skills you will need will be taught to you, and you can bring your extra skills as a bonus.

Call-outs occur in all types of weather, all hours, day or night, rain, snow or shine, weekends, weekdays, or holidays, and when they do it means someone is in trouble..

We are volunteers, and the fact of life is there will be times you will not be able to respond. You might be on vacation, or down the hill in a critical business meeting. Maybe in the middle of your wedding! And that is ok, respond once you can.

As a team member you should respond when you are able.

There will be times that you were in the middle of eating at a nice restaurant and the call comes in, you hop in the car, get all your gear, get down to the station and the pager says "subject found, thanks for the help."

There will be times when you will find out there was no lost subject after all, and it was just a lot of false information.

...if this doesn't deter you.

...if you strive on aventure and helping others

...if you want to make a real difference and save some lives.

Come join us for one of our meetings and learn more about what we do and how you can become a member.

What if a 35lbs pack is too much for me?

  • Not everyone can physically do what a SAR member can do. Trudging through the snow, ice, mud and sand through brush and poison ivy might not be your cup of tea. However if you wish to help, there are many other ways to help.
  • Search and Rescue has many fundraisers to buy team equipment to aid in the rescues, like pizza night. Who doens't know someone who likes pizza?
