MSAR Recruitment Information Session – Sept 10!

Mission Search & Rescue is looking for some new recruits.

We will be holding an information session at our base on Thursday, September 10, 2015 for those interested in joining the team and on Sunday, September 13, will take potential recruits on an introductory hike to assess your fitness level.  We will then conduct interviews between Sept 14 and Sept 25, making final decisions the week of September 28.

Our basic level ground search and rescue course (GSAR) will start October 6, for selected candidates.  It is only run once per year.   Check out this website for more information and try the Quiz on the Volunteer page.  If you send an e-mail to we can provide further information and an application.

Please note, the minimum age requirement for team members is 19.  The course is approximately 6 months, with classes every Tuesday evening.  The information session provides the opportunity to find out what is involved in being a SAR volunteer, what kind of commitment is required and answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
