After sorting through over 100 applications and interviews, Teton County Search and Rescue has welcomed 10 new volunteers.
The new class, the first since 2015, consists of Andrew Armington, Tobin Dennis, Ashley Didion, Anna DiSanto, Lexie Drechsel, Lauren Funaro, Ian Johnston, Dan Rogers, Steve Wurm and Brook Yeomans.
“They come to TCSAR from a wide range of backgrounds and with a multitude of skills,” Matt Hansen of the Teton County Search and Rescue Foundation said in a press release. “From now until the end of this year, they will go through extensive training to gain several certifications.”
The new volunteers won’t go out on rescue missions until they’ve completed training, which takes about a year.
“It is a significant investment for the team and foundation to bring on a new class, as training and outfitting must be funded through private donations,” Hansen said.
