Our primary missions, today, center on Emergency Relief, Rescue, and Aid to Civil Authorities. We are volunteers who serve without pay, buy our own uniforms, meals, and transportation. We train with the US Military Services in their schools to achieve the levels of proficiency needed to be first responders in any emergency. We are all required to be First Aid and CPR Certified. We also train our personnel for proficiency in Nuclear and Chemical decontamination measurers.
