Wow team, 3 searches in the last month, SAR season is upon us! Our searches don’t always end the way we’d like but to be able to assist in bringing a loved one home at least allows closure to the much deserved family and is the most rewarding feeling in the world.
Do you enjoy the outdoors? Have you ever wanted to learn survival techniques? Do you like mingling with like-minded individuals? Have you been looking for a way to give back to society and haven’t found your organization yet? I’m here to tell you, there’s no better feeling than finding and being able to bring a loved one home.
Join us at Miramichi Ground Search and Rescue. We are always training and recruiting, be sure to check out our calendar of events. We have our, “Searcher 1,” course coming up on 22-June-2013 which consists of a weekend of training for basic searcher skills. This is the minimum course requirements needed by our searchers to be able to be the, “eyes.” People think it requires a lot of dedication and time. If you are 16+ years of age, membership form filled out, a criminal background check done and this Searcher 1 course, you will be put on our team list and will have the option to be activated with us on searches. If you’re busy, you don’t go… simple as that.
We are the unpaid professionals that work tirelessly on the sidelines to help bring your loved ones home. “So that others may live,” and we’d be lost without you. We are Miramichi Ground Search and Rescue and we need you!
