Search and Rescue Meetup! Three nights between 12/12 - 12/19

VOLUNTEER RESCUERS NEEDED

www.bamru.org/join

[masked]

The Bay Area Mountain Rescue Unit (BAMRU) is looking for mountaineers and people with wilderness medical training who enjoy the outdoors, teamwork, physical challenge and helping other people.

BAMRU is currently ramping up for its 2013 recruiting season. If you are interested in Search and Rescue and want to come learn more about our team/recruiting process please join us for one of the three scheduled Bay Area recruiting events. Several BAMRU members will be present to discuss and answer questions about the team and recruiting process.

RECRUITING EVENTS (Look for BAMRU members in red uniforms):

Oakland: Wednesday, Dec. 12th 7-9 pm - Pacific Coast Brewing Co.

Mountain View: Monday, Dec. 17th 7-9 pm - Tied House

San Francisco: Wednesday, Dec. 19th 7-9 pm - Southern Pacific Brewing Co.

Stop by anytime. BAMRU members will be there from 7-9pm.

BAMRU is a volunteer wilderness search and rescue team specialized for operations involving difficult terrain, challenging weather conditions, or high altitude. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and respond throughout California as an accredited member of the Mountain Rescue Association, a FEMA and California OES Type I search and rescue resource and is a volunteer branch of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department.

BAMRU members are men and women who share a desire to put their specialized outdoors skills to use in the service of people missing or injured in the wilderness. BAMRU members are climbers, skiers, mountaineers and backpackers. Self-sufficiency is a trademark of BAMRU. Members are prepared to operate in the field autonomously and without support, for up to 72 hours.

    Hi there - I've done a little mountaineering and no wilderness medical training. Is this only for already qualified individuals or is there any training options available. I'd love to be involved. Thanks!

      Hi Michelle, Sorry I missed this post somehow. We really are looking for people who are very comfortable in the backcountry. You can see our minimum requirements here: http://www.bamru.org/...­ Feel free to drop by one of the events if you want to talk specifically about your situation. :) You can also see our training schedule here: http://www.bamru.org/...­

    Rachel, I'm right next to San Mateo. Do you have a more local event?

      Hey Stuart, San Mateo is actually our team's home county - but I am afraid to say that either San Francisco or Mountain View are your closest options for this round of recruiting. I hope one of the two can work for you.
