Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, KC4x4SAR has moved its membership meetings to be online-only.
KC4x4SAR is not just for people with 4×4 trucks! We are a diverse group, with diverse needs including:
- Van Team: unit vehicle drivers and support teams
- Callout Team: liaisons between the Sheriff’s office and members
- Administrative help
- Communications support
Our application process is straightforward, but it does take some time to move through the steps.
To become a 4×4 member, you must:
- Submit a New Member Application
Your application must include the following documents:
- Be Approved by the Board
The 4×4 Board of Directors will vote on whether or not to accept your application.
- Pass a Background Check
Your application will be processed by King County Sheriff’s Office for a background check.
- Attend a 4×4 Unit Meeting.
Unit meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month, and information sessions for prospective members are held 30 minutes before each meeting.
- Be Approved by the 4×4 General Membership
Your application will be presented to our General Membership for a final vote at a Unit meeting.
- Pay New Member Dues
See below for information on new member dues. Please do not pay until you have been approved by the General Membership.
- Attend a New Member Orientation
All new members must attend an orientation before they are eligible to respond to missions. Dates and times for your orientation will be provided after your membership is approved.
Please contact vpa@kc4x4sar if you have any questions about joining KC4x4SAR.
