• Altadena Rescue Team Looking For a Few Good Volunteers


    ALTADENA (CNS) – The Altadena Mountain Rescue Team will be holding a recruiting get-together at the Eaton Canyon Nature Center today.

    The rescue team, dispatched to find lost and injured hikers in the Angeles National Forest, is looking for a few good men and women to volunteer. The membership drive meeting at 1750 N. Altadena Drive starts at 10 a.m. and will run until about 2 p.m.’

    The sheriff’s Altadena station serves at the headquarters for the rescue team, which handles about 40 searches and rescues each year, as well as weekend patrols. Founded in 1951, the Altadena Mountain Rescue Team, a nonprofit volunteer group run by reserve sheriff’s deputies, is the oldest of its kind in the county.

    About 150 volunteers make up eight rescue teams.

    More information about the rescue team is at the website www.amrt.org.
