The fact that you are reading this handout says something about your very character. You feel a need to help.
The last thing we want to do is to stop you from wanting to help. As mentioned earlier this packet was prepared by us to help you. If you thought SAR was something else, and it's not how you want to help, there are many avenues open to you. The information that follows presents some alternative methods in which you can volunteer your time to assist the community.
1. There are different volunteer teams within the Sheriff's department: Patrol Reserves, Posse, Dive team, Aviation, Search Dog Team, and Citizen Patrol. Contact Volunteer Services for further information.
2. Local hospitals are often in need of volunteers to help them in different areas (refer to a telephone book).
3. Have you considered volunteering time to youth programs? The Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts have outdoor activities etc.
4. There are many other support groups and volunteer organizations listed in the telephone books.
Whatever you decide we thank you for your interest in our team, and wish you well.
