Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of SusSAR.
Due to overwhelming interest we now cannot accept any new operational member applications at this stage.
If you're interested in joining us as an operational member please check back later in the year as we anticipate opening applications again in July.
However, we are still able to accept applications for fundraising members. If you would like to support our fundraising please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What Does it Mean to be a Member of SusSAR?
Membership of SusSAR involves quite a considerable commitment in terms of time, effort and money.
Time - We hold two training evenings a month (2nd and 4th Thursday) at various locations across Sussex. Attendance at callouts is expected wherever possible, and these can occur during the day or at night. Members are also asked to attend fundraising events, in order to help keep the team operational.
Effort - Joining the team involves an initial 4-6 month probationary period, followed by attendance (& successful completion) of a weekend training course in search skills. Further ongoing training is then available and expected.
Money - being volunteers, all members provide their own kit, transport and fuel costs.
