The Search and Rescue (SAR) Volunteer is part of a SAR team that deploys to search sites and conducts SAR operations under the Director of SAR and Director of Operations. The SAR volunteer will believe in the mission of GIJ SAR, and have the safety of themselves and their team members as their first priority. The volunteer will be a team player, and have a willingness to learn new skills and train themselves and their team members in those new skills. The volunteer will observe all deployment guidelines, and have their personal equipment package ready to go at any time. During deployment, the volunteer will drive to the specified location safely, and assemble with the other volunteers at the Command Post. The volunteer will work with his/her team members in deployment actions that may include search and rescue, medical operations, hiking to remote locations, and other specialized SAR operations (water rescue, rappelling, etc). At the SAR site, the volunteer may work with other organizations, both in the private and public sector, and will need to be able to integrate into those organizations positively and effectively. The volunteer will also need to be able to keep accurate records and documents during deployments, and will let the Director of SAR or Chair of SAR know about any training or credentialing needs.
