Washington SAR Conference

WASAR 2011 was a great conference!

This year's conference was top notch.  Over 700 SAR members from 5 countries (Ice Land, UK, Canada and others) and ten states attended. 

The conference seminars were first rate. 

Better yet, those that could start on Monday received in depth, specialized training in Urban Search, Team Leadership, Lost Person Behavior, and Law Enforcement High Risk Search Operations.

The actual conference (Friday through Sunday) had classes in K9 operations, tracking, search management, evidence search, legal matters pertaining to SAR, electronics, communication, navigation, mountain rescue, a SAR academy... and the list just goes on.  A "boat load" of information and training.

The cost was $65 if you pre-registered, $85 after May 19.  Not bad.

The 2012 conference will be in Goldendale in mid May.
