Karen Palmer of Kent County SAR sums up what being on a SAR team is like -- training, training, and more training -- to be ready when the call comes. Here are her thoughts:

I imagine that many of the people who quit SAR within the first year or two are disappointed when the "adventures" we have happen mostly in training or a few missions, and that most of those involve becoming very hot, very cold, very wet, very sweaty and dirty, and covered in pickers, stickers, and/or mud. Much of the rest of the time, SAR involves getting in uniform and driving toward somewhere, then turning around and going back home, most often late at night.
That could get tiring pretty quickly for some. But if you focus on the missing persons, their families, and your team, you'll go and train often and sometimes drive somewhere just to turn around and occasionally even search when you are needed. You'll celebrate every good news with your team, and maybe even get a look at a lovely bright moon that you would've missed if you went to bed without that trip. Then you'll set aside that uniform to be ready for the next chance to help someone.
