Welcome to the Sounds Like a Search and Rescue Podcast! Also known as SLASR.
Join an experienced search and rescue volunteer and his friend as they discuss all things related to hiking and search and rescue in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
This week we welcome George to talk about how funding is managed for Search and Rescue. The discussion was very interesting and George gave us his perspective on why we need to start looking at the big picture around how funding for Fish and Game and conservation efforts are handled.
