The volunteer searchers that come from SAR organisations around the country are always a pleasure to work with.
They give up their free time to search for missing people 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are well turned out with equipment and clothing, yet they have to buy most of their equipment from their own funds.
For us as trackers at Shadowhawk, it makes the instructors very proud to be associated with them. For our small bit, it may be that if they just use a small amount of tracking and it saves one life, then our job is done.
When I left the Shadowwolves in Arizona, the Chief Tracker wrote a simple letter," Make good use of your knowledge, pass it on".
The SAR course, is where we get a good chance to make good use of the knowledge, which really could save a life, and make a difference.
