Becoming a member of Taos Search and Rescue means joining a team of individuals committed to serving the community with a high degree of professionalism and expertise. Individual heroism and recognition are not what SAR work is about. While each person does play a vital role in the mission scenario, it is only through teamwork and cooperation that a search or rescue succeeds.

In order to maintain and improve their skills, members are expected to attend regular trainings in wilderness survival, first aid, navigation, radio communication, and search and evacuation techniques. Trainings are also offered in specialities such as high angle technical rescue, swift water rescue, K-9 search, and mounted search.
