One of my many projects is finally coming to fruition and I am pleased to announce that the Backcountry Unit of the Blount County Rescue Squad is now recruiting.
Experienced outdoor athletes = You need 10+ years of experience in outdoor adventure pursuits
Hazardous work = You will be exposed to risks associated with off trail travel in mountainous terrain
No wages = You won’t get paid
Long hours = You may get tired
Adverse weather = Rain, sleet, snow, heat, etc.
High level of fitness = USFS pack test + 6 mile carry out + 100 burpess in under 10 minutes
Honor and recognition = May just be a pat on the back and knowing you helped out where few others could
