In Good Hands
Fast-forward eight years to 2015. I have the opportunity to do a KUED documentary on Search and Rescue (SAR), so I get in touch with the team. Sure enough, almost everyone I worked with in Range Creek is still there, which is amazing because they’re all volunteers. Yup, they don’t get paid. They spend scores of hours a year training, dole out thousands of dollars for gear, and get called out in the middle of the night or on holidays in all kinds of nasty weather to help perfect strangers. What possesses someone to do that? That’s the question at the heart of the new film and this blog.
