Get Ready For
SARCity is celebrating it's 37th year this October 9th, 10th
and 11th, 2009. There will be lots of new classes, while still
offering the basics for those just getting into search and
rescue. For those who have not heard of, or had the opportunity
to attend SARCity, let me give you a short synopsis.
||SARCity is put on by the Barstow Desert Rescue
Squad, in conjunction with the San Bernardino County Sheriff,
OES, Barstow College and the over 100 instructors who volunteer
their time and expertise. Over fifty classes are offered, some
last an hour, others can go the whole weekend. Four excellent
meals are provided, and for the weekend tent camping or motor
home space is provided or stay at a motel within a couple miles.
A Saturday night program starts with a barbeque, a special guest
presentation, followed by a huge raffle. You will not find a
better training experience at any level than here. Team
participation is encouraged and we discount for five or more
members. For specific questions please contact us.
