KAMLOOPS — As temperatures begin dipping, Kamloops Search and Rescue's next mission is finding more members to join the team.

KSAR's fall recruitment drive is underway, and the organization is looking for dedicated individuals who want to be part of the group.

This year, members have been tasked out 32 times and logged roughly 3,000 task hours this year which is on track to set new team records.

Aspiring members are required to be at least 19 years old, have or be willing to obtain occupational first aid, have a valid driver's licence, be physically capable of dealing with the many terrains in and around Kamloops in all seasons, and have their own personal ready pack.

Interviews are set to begin in the next couple of weeks, and the 97-hour ground search and rescue training program will take place in the new year.
