How to Join


How Do I Join?

We generally accept applications once a year beginning in the early part of a year.  We anticipate accepting applications for next year’s class in January.  This will depend on many factors.  We invite you to still visit us and contact us if interested.

We do welcome people who are interested to contact us.  We have volunteer needs throughout the year that range beyond rescue work.  The team needs people who can also help organize, fundraise, volunteer at the EOS during large countywide emergencies.

Please feel free to reach out.


Membership in LPCSAR is a commitment.  It takes engaged people to respond to the wide variety of missions we see.  We have regular meetings, trainings and fundraising events that require members to participate in.  We do not always have openings, but we welcome your interest as we sometimes have very specific needs that we want to fill.  So we invite you to reach out to us.

We accept applications once a year.  If you would like to be notified when we have openings or are accepting applications for general members, then please use the contact form on this website to tell us you are interested.  We will then put you on our interest list.

Once you are on the list you will be invited to events.
