Meeting Location Changes
Greetings all! In light of the current COVID-19 situation we have moved our business and training meetings to the outdoor tables on the south side of the Alamogordo Public Library. The dates and times remain the same only the location at the library has changed. If you plan on attending please observe social distancing and bring a mask along. Also, reconsider attending if you are, or have been feeling under the weather.
We recently had a call out near La Luz, New Mexico. Teams from all over the state came to support the search effort for a 33 year old female subject. ALASAR set up an Incident Base to support the Incident Commander and managed the communications for the search effort. ALASAR members also supported ground search teams. The search was suspended in the evening of 11 June and set to resume the morning of 12 June. The subject was found in good condition by non-SAR individuals on the morning of 12 June and the search was terminated.
On 19 October 2019, ALASAR held it’s monthly field training. This training session built upon the skills learned and honed at our recent monthly training meeting. The team performed a mock mission that required the use of land navigation skills. Members had to use both GPS and map and compass to accomplish the mission. If you want to get involved come to our next meeting on 5 November at 6pm. Meetings are held in the Sacramento Room of the Alamogordo Public Library. Hope to see you there!
There have been some changes with Alamogordo Search and Rescue in the past few months. The biggest being a change of venue for our business and training meetings. Our meetings are now held in the Sacramento Room at the Alamogordo Public Library. The library is located at 920 Oregon Ave. Meetings start at 6pm. All are welcome so if you are curious about who we are stop by and say hello!
