vital part of the team is the base support personnel. These personnel
remain on our mobile command center and help coordinate all
communications between the field teams and the other search personnel on
site. In addition, these team members provide logistical support such
as medical and food services. The people who help in this role go through the same theory training as the rest of the volunteers so they are able to assist with search planning and deployment requirements.
Not all of these members are operational members, that is they dont all deploy to an incident. Some of these members chose to assist 'behind the scenes'. This includes the logistcs of ensuring our gear is all ready, available and checked for any certifications required. Ensuring our paperwork is up to date and training locations organised. They also assist with the various commiunity events and fundraising activities we do.
