Ready to be a NVADG Volunteer?
Take the New Volunteer Training, or the 2014 Returning Volunteers Refresher
Anyone can train to become a NVADG volunteer! Our mandatory 16-hour basic training for new volunteers is January 24-25, 2015. The location will be the Butte County Search and Rescue Training Center, 3898 Morrow Lane, Chico. Time: 8:00am registration, class runs 9:00-17:00 both Saturday and Sunday.
