RAW: Search and Rescue team seeks volunteers; recruitment night Wednesday, March 19

The all-volunteer Mono County Search and Rescue team saves, rescues, finds, or helps dozens of people every year in some of the most extreme conditions and terrain the Eastern Sierra has to offer. It is one of the hardest working, most rewarding jobs out there, and this Wednesday, March 19, the annual recruitment night will show you why.

Who should come?
Mono County residents, at least 18 years of age.
Avid outdoorsman/woman who enjoys all the Eastern Sierra has to offer in terms of outdoor recreation.
Someone who wonders if you could be doing more.

The Mono County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue (SAR) team annual recruitment will take place on Wednesday, March 19, at 7 p.m., at the SAR building located at the corner of southbound Hwy 203 and Meridian Blvd (next to the Mammoth Community Water District—simply follow the signs and the cones). This is the perfect opportunity to meet current team members, tour the SAR building, see what equipment is utilized by the team, and get all the information you need on this dynamic, all-volunteer team.

The SAR team is the local search and rescue team comprised of all volunteer members. The team averages approximately 30 operations per year. The team is seeking members who want to be a part of a dynamic team, who want to get out there and help people, and who have the time and dedication it takes for trainings and field operations.
