Marin County Search and Rescue is made up of people from different backgrounds and various experience levels. All of our members bring something different to the team. We maintain the team at around eighty people year round. In order to do this we have two recruitment periods each year. Normally, one in early winter, and a second takes place in late summer. Our next deadline for applications will be February 21st, 2014.
If you are interested in knowing more about our team, you are invited to attend one of our General Meetings. We also strongly suggest that you review the Frequently Asked Questions outlined in the link below.
Befor applying to join the team, you have to attend General Meetings. For your application to be seriously considered, you should attend at least two General Meetings and as many as possible. In addition, we expect a minimum commitment to the team of two years, and hopefully many more.
Our training calendar is very dynamic, just like our team. Please check it frequently to see what events are open to prospective members and also to confirm the location and time of trainings. General Meetings will be at Building 816 in Novato (directions and a map.) The date or location for a meeting may change, so please check our calendar before heading to a meeting.
