SARCity is celebrating it's 40th year this October 12th, 13th and 14th, 2012. 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.
