By the time trainees become fully certified, they will have the equipment and experience to be able to comfortably stay in the wilderness for up to 48 hours, and the ability to stay longer if unexpected emergencies arise. Depending on the needs and expectations of each individual search mission, unit members will carry a 48-hour pack, or break down to a 24-hour or 12-hour pack.

Pack List – this list details the equipment that unit members are required to obtain and carry. Please DO NOT start purchasing equipment until you have been through the first classroom training, as this training will involve a detailed class on proper equipment and what to look for before purchasing new gear. Note that our unit also has the ability to assist in finding second-hand or discounted equipment for new trainees.
