Review for DESERT GROUP SEARCH AND RESCUE VOLUNTEERS, Rosamond, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Desert Group Search and Rescue Volunteers is extremely proactive and is made up of a well functioning group of unselfish people that give up their time, energy, and even money to help others especially being able to leave the safety of their home and families to risk their own lives to rescue someone they have never met and / or provide answers to love ones. They provide resources and skills that most people would not do for a living for free because it is a important resource that the community needs at its weakest point. In the their support area, most of the terrain is remote and difficult to get there by standard vehicles that even a majority of police and emergency services vehicles can not get to, leading to more specific training and equipment for the required need of the community that is not cheap and / or easily available for non-profit organizations.

The funding the group receives and raises goes directly to resources they need from medical supplies, life saving training, vehicle maintenance, etc. Not one penny goes to someone’s salary, everyone in this group is a volunteer. The volunteers participate in varies activities to schools, desert clean-up, etc. to educate the public about safety (e.g. passing out identifications, maps) and off-road activities since medical services are normally over a hour away when an accident does happen.

Thank you for reviewing this write up because this group is an amazing group of volunteers and any funding that can be provided to them will be greatly appreciated and used in the community.
