The latest group of Mission Search and Rescue volunteers have completed their six months of training, and are now ready to respond.
The recruits’ education consisted of search theory, subject evacuation, rope rescue, swift water safety, first aid and survival. They had to pass several quizzes and exams as well as practical evaluations.
The newest members are Mike Corlett, Travis Hildebrandt, Peter Storck and Sean Sublett.
Other presentations included a certificate to Clinton Swan for completing his occupational first aid level three, and a certificate to Gary Swan for promotion to tracker one.
Search and rescue is truly a volunteer emergency service, as they are not paid on call and must provide their own basic outdoor gear.
A new ground search and rescue (GSAR) class will be starting in January and anyone interested in finding out more about the organization can visit www.missionsar.com.
