THE RED ROCK STANDARD
“To harness the spirit of the volunteer
To train hard and be the best at what we do
To give ourselves freely to our community
To leave no person behind”
Becoming a member of the team is a rewarding process. All applicants begin with an FBI background check for the safety of the team and those in need of rescue. The next step in order to deploy is becoming familiar with FEMA and the Incident Command System (ICS) . These online courses (ICS 100, 200, 700, and 800) will enable members to attach to other government agencies seamlessly in times of crisis.
At this point, a member can begin their training and certifications. Red Rock Search and Rescue (RRSAR) trains to the National Association for Search and Rescue (NASAR) standards. RRSAR is a national training center and is capable of certifying members in NASAR standards without the need of traveling. Members are required to become certified in CPR/ AED/ First Aid as well as having opportunities to expand their qualifications in courses such as Wilderness First Aid and Phycological First Aid. We cover many areas of medical awareness including Oxygen Administration and Blood Born Pathogens as well.
Medical training is a very important aspect of our train, yet it is only one of the many. Members are encouraged to be licensed by the FCC for their Ham Radio License while learning the importance and efficiency of communication. This skill paired with map reading and orientation is used heavily in the field and even on urban searches.
Our cadre of instructors will train and help develop many skills along the way in the field of searching, tracking and missing persons behavior and leaving “no man behind” applies to the classroom as well. We will tutor any member who is willing to put in the effort to becoming certified and confident in their abilities to bring necessary skills to an emergency situation.
