      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Washington SAR conference '02

Recommended Posts

I've never done any search and rescue but would like to get involved. This conference look like the first step, but I'm not sure what I'll leave the conference with. Am I certified for something once I go, or what?? Either way, the experience would be great. I see a class for "Bombs and Booby Traps" that looks quite useful.

From what I remember the SAR conference was really intended for current members to get current on classes to meet the requirements of the Wash. Admin. Code for SAR personel. I'm not sure when all the groups start their basic training but I know at least one group starts in the fall and goes throughout the winter. I'm pretty sure there is a page for King County SAR where you could find out about the various groups.

Drew,

 

I think that you will soon find out that most individuals involved with SAR, are in fact, looking to be rescued......perhaps not in the realm of climbing, but in one of the many other facets of life.

 

The words SAR and Mountaineers can and should be used synonymously......I hope not to deter you from your ambitions or aspirations, I just hate to see other climbers waste their climbing time away.
