Why I volunteer…
“Just knowing that I have some training and experience that I can use in my community to help save people’s lives in the outdoors is a very humbling feeling. To say I am a member of Search and Rescue is pretty special and a lot of people thank us for what we do when it is brought up in conversation!”
