Conduct searches in both rural and urban environments by foot, on ATV, or by 4×4 vehicle as required. Be prepared to deploy in very difficult locations and all-weather environments. Be involved in many roles in a SAR incident including litter bearer, radio relay, re-supply, navigation assistant, etc. Provide support as needed to our specialty teams.
Equipment Needs: Radio, GPS, Ground Pack (load-bearing of sufficient size to fit all equipment), Survival/First Aid equipment, Self-Rescue, Light Sources, Clothing & Personal Protective Equipment, Shelter, Food & Hydration, and additional mission-specific supplies as needed.
