• Search and Rescue RSS Feed

    The Arizona Virtual Jeep Club has it's own search and rescue team to assist members who are missing (rare) or who are stuck (most common).
    There is typically no fee charged for either search or rescue efforts, but it is considerate to offer to reimburse members who help you. Members on the AZVJC search and rescue team are sent text messages to their cell phones when a message is posted to either the Urgent Rescue Assistance Forum or the Low Priority Rescue forum located here:

    AZVJC Search and Rescue Forum

    Search and rescue posts of a general nature should be posted in the main portion of the search and rescue forum. Please note that because text messages are widely distributed (the AZVJC has over 100 search and rescue members), please post to the urgent or low priority rescue forums only when necessary.

    If you wish to sign up to become a member of the AZVJC search and rescue team, you may do so here:
