Congratulations to our new Team Leaders! Our new Team Leaders successfully applied their skills in both written exam and demonstrated field exercises during a 40 hour course that was completed Saturday! All arrived prepared, ready, and looking sharp, as they skillfully applied what they have learned. PPSAR's Team Leaders are a valuable asset to our group of professional volunteers that include our Basic Searchers, and Search Managers.

I know that everyone learned things that will greatly increase our overall team preparedness, and in the process made some lasting memories. Great Team work everyone! Keep up the good work!
