Your comment Leigh hit a sore spot for me; "those that want to be heroes don't last long,they quit." Sorry, that is the furthest from the truth in my case, and in others I know that "resigned"!

As i indicated, it is not why i resigned.. Egos and politics being the main reasons.A little more in my case but i won't get into specifics.But I do believe the provincial body should be surveying those that do resign.Perhaps a better way to have worded the "quitting" comment would have been to say that "some quit or drop out" and not make it seem like all that quit
"want to be heroes."

Ah gotcha. Although I knew some of the members in the past and they did have the "Im a hero" attitude about them.

Or sometimes the hero complex is developed through the experience.

Search and Rescue isn't a job. They are volunteers.

agreed I think the fact that pearson whom is the so called head of Vernon sars is a prima donna
and runs things his own way almost like he thinks he owns the whole deal there are others there like pete
that are out and out nutballs in their own right. I think lots of people join with this group are
unable to cope with these certain people and find its not what its supposed to be like
