New recruits will be offered training in tracking and search management, first-aid, swift water rescue and survival techniques.

Applications for membership may be obtained at the front desk of the Carson City Sheriff's Department, 901 East Musser St., during normal business hours. Applications will be accepted until Wednesday.
