Multnomah County SOSAR is a 100% volunteer organization. Over 1,000 Oregon State Certified Searchers have graduated from their ranks. They have participated in over 1,500 missions for wilderness missing persons, urban missing persons, and criminal evidence searches; serving over 240,000 man-hours involved in missions, and over 1.25 million in total.
They boast a Basic training program that is one of the most comprehensive in the North West with a nine month rescue training schedule that begins each September. Their search and rescue training teaches new members everything they need to know to earn the Oregon State Search & Rescue certification. Along with navigation and survival skills, some of the rescue techniques members learn are techniques such as patient packaging, litter carry, rough land evacuation, first aid, CPR, medical assessment, and helicopter extraction procedures.
As members advance beyond the Basic program they learn advanced search and rescue skills in the Intermediate Training program. This rescue training is designed to meet the State Certification Type 2 or Type 1 criteria and it can include Search Leadership & Decision Making, Helicopter Operations, Urban Search & Rescue, Advanced Medical, Advanced Night Navigation, United States National Grid and/or Basic Rope Skills.
NORSAR members are first and foremost ground team members which fall under the training and certification requirements that follow the search standards for certification from the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association (OSSA). Ground team members learn proficiency in map and compass land navigation, radio communications, base operations, shelter building, extensive survival techniques, patient assessment, stokes operations, helicopter safety, knots and rope work. Ground team members who receive the OSSA card for search certification are qualified to assist in active searches.
