Socorro Search and Rescue will hold its monthly meeting via Zoom. If you are interested in becoming a member or attending the meeting to see if you would be interested in joining the team, then email us at socorrosearch@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link for the meeting.  

What it takes to be on the team:

  • Ability to hike fairly long distances (several miles) in easy to difficult terrain in a variety of weather.
  • Hiking/camping gear - list of required gear provided
  • Completion of 2 online courses
  • Completion of overnight training or supplemental day training with associated classroom portion to familiarize yourself with search and rescue techniques and equipment
  • Within ~1 year, completion of the Field Certification exam (free, no cost to take)

You are never required to go on a mission and never judged when you don't. But it's a lot of fun and incredibly rewarding!
