What exactly do we do? We perform rescues in forests, mountains and deserts, on the snow or rock, day or night. Our responders are highly trained in ground search, medical care, communication, and technical rope rescue.
We welcome people with backcountry experience; however, no experience is required to join our team, just some enthusiasm, a flexible schedule, and a basic level of commitment.
New members to our team will be assigned a mentor who can show you the ropes and help you obtain all of the necessary gear and information.
If you don’t already know someone on the team, John Becker is the point of contact for new members, and will act as your mentor. You can contact John by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to meeting you!
President of Atalaya Search and Rescue
