Many northern Nevadans enjoy the high desert and mountain terrain, but recreating in the Great Outdoors can be dangerous.
And that's why hundreds of highly-trained volunteers are on standby available at a moment's notice to help in emergencies.
Lieutenant Tim O'Connor with Washoe County's Search and Rescue Team can answer your questions about their efforts, their training, even how you can get involved.
If you have a question, call 858-2222 between 5pm-6pm.
