This post has an outstanding search & rescue program for incorporating the youth from the community into it’s ranks. The personal and professional standards of the members gives it a sterling reputation. Their skills and services are often requested by police agencies throughout Oregon. The Explorers comprise the primary ground Search and Rescue team for Washington County. Search and Rescue missions can include searches for lost people, downed aircraft and evidence in major crimes.
The unique characteristic about Washington County Search & Rescue is this recruiting of young people ages 14-19. No special skills are required to become an Explorer. Potential members simply have to meet the minimum requirements. Some of the minimum requirements include being 14-19 years old, possessing a positive community record, being in good physical health and the accumulation of a minimum GPA of 2.3 with no failing classes. With those minimums and a few others being met, they then must complete the the Search and Rescue Posts’s basic training academy and commit to being an active member for a minimum of two years.
The subsequent training these Explorers go through isn’t for the faint of heart. All new members attend the Sheriff’s Office Explorer Academy which puts them through extensive search and rescue training for a period of 12 days. Upon graduating from the academy, members train throughout the year during weekday evening meetings and during selected weekends. Search & Rescue training can take place in any weather. The Explorer program is a serious commitment for any individual, but it holds the promise of being personally rewarding on many levels.
The search and rescue academy training is physically and mentally demanding. Both the Academy and the ongoing training offers a wide range of training and learning opportunities. Knowledge and skills mastery can include land navigation (including GPS), man tracking, search techniques, rappelling and rope rescue techniques, wilderness survival, first aid and wilderness medicine, patient care and packaging, communications, helicopter safety and rescue, Incident Command System (ICS), traffic and crowd control, personal and professional ethics, self defense, firearms safety, patrol tactics, officer survival, traumatic incident stress and criminal law. As you can see, Explorer members learn skills that will serve both them and their community well and they are sure to last a lifetime.
