We all have different passions in life: perhaps a passion to travel the world, passion to sing, and so many more. As volunteers of DCSAR we all have the passion to save lives. If you wish to make a difference in Douglas County, DCSAR may be the place to find your passion. We are 100% volunteers who wish to enrich our community by providing search and rescue services at no charge. If you’re interested in joining, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The class of 2019 will be our last class until 2021 (due to our year-long recertification requirements of the Mountain Rescue Association in 2020).
Thank you to all who joined us on July 17th for the new member informational meeting. We look forward to you joining the team!
