EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

When you are lost, cold, hungry or injured, hours seem like days, and days seem like a lifetime. 

Rapid response to a lost person incident requires incredible dedication in an all-volunteer organization like OCSAR.  The training is endless, the hours can be long, and the call rarely comes at a convenient time.  Experienced searchers know that when someone is in trouble, you have to drop everything and grab your gear bag.  The level of commitment of our crew members is one rarely given to a volunteer position.  Why?  Because it matters.  Because your actions could save someone’s life.
