Have you volunteered before?


This organization involves hiking, walking and standing, none of which need to be extreme. It is up to the patroller how much they wish to do, but these activities are part of the role. Short term limitations are understandable and expected at times.

Months you are available for Patrol activities (vacations not included)?

We require training and patrolling in the FIRST year for Winter Residents to be the second choice of 6 months consecutive staring in November. After the first year, we allow any series of 5 months contiguous.
