Since Search & Rescue volunteers work directly with Sheriff's Deputies and in terms of policies are like employees of Spokane County, there is a very thorough application.

Greater Spokane Emergency Management assists the SCSO in managing volunteer information, including coordinating some of the training.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the application and mail all six pages to Emergency Management, Attn: Chris Barnes, 1121 W. Gardner Ave., Spokane, WA 99201. If you prefer, you can scan and email it to Chris. PLEASE INCLUDE A COPY OF YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE.

For questions or more information, contact Chris Barnes at (509) 477-3007 or via email.
