The objective of Alamogordo Search and Rescue is to train volunteers in survival skills, land navigation, dispatch procedures and radio communication, search techniques, evacuation and patient transport, and after-mission reporting. Currently, we have eleven people ready to respond to missions. Teams are activated as a result of requests from the New Mexico State Police, District 8, encompassing Otero and Lincoln Counties and more distant locations when necessary. Missions involve finding the lost, rendering aid to the injured, and recovering the deceased.
In the past year alone, Alamogordo Search and Rescue teams were activated for missions at White Sands (Alkali Flats), Oliver Lee State Park, the Sacramento Mountains, Three Rivers, Westside Road, Vaughn and Ruidoso.
