MEDICAL TEAM

The Medical Team consists of Search and Rescue members who hold a minimum certification of Emergency Medical Technician. Many of the team members currently work in the medical community and contribute a variety of skills and expertise brought from their various backgrounds and experience in emergency response. SLOSAR’s Continuing Education Program allows these members to maintain their certification through ongoing training which provides continuing education credit for EMTs, Paramedics, and RNs. The team’s primary responsibility is providing medical care for Search and Rescue members and for the citizens of San Luis Obispo County who are in need. During holiday and busy weekends, the team works alongside CA State Parks to provide emergency medical care at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. The medical team is also tasked with providing certifications in Title 22 First Aid and BLS CPR to Search and Rescue members, as well as conducting recurrent medical training to maintain the skill proficiency of the Search and Rescue unit.
