Fourth: Email any certificates/qualifications you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete these 4 online classes, if you have not already. We know they're not very exciting, but they're a requirement for many training opportunities we will be offering.
Cost: We love our volunteers, and try to keep your costs as low as possible. We do ask that you pay for your background check and uniform pants.
Uniform: In order to distinguish ourselves from other organizations and allow officials to recognize our volunteers, we require all volunteers to wear a uniform. We will provide you (at no cost) with a SEARCH and RESCUE shirt/shirts upon your first deployment. All you will need to purchase is BDU pants (color OLIVE DRAB), we suggest these TRU SPEC 8 POCKET BDU . They are inexpensive and wear well.
Once you have completed all the steps you will be added to our deployment alert system.
