Drama between the Teams...

....good grieve... the drama between the teams and counties... is it always like that?

If some teams would concentrate on what they are doing instead of trying to control and talk **** about others, maybe they would actually get some training done.

Yup - SAR and Politics go together. That is why we put this in our team code of ethics (see blue) to always remind us. It is very hard but you have to not let them suck you into their games. We are fotunate in having a good relationship with our depeartment and several teams in our and surrounding states. Some, not all. Not sure what "power" is to be had or why people want it.


I will be mindful that my actions represent the team to both the search and rescue community and the community at large and will act with tact and diplomacy, respecting the confidentiality of information I may receive.
I will not discredit members of other teams or the agencies whom we serve. I will not seek to resolve issues that may arise though a public forum, but rather through the appropriate chain of command.
I will honor the cultural, political, religious, and racial diversity of all people and treat them with dignity and respect. In no way will such differences interfere with my assigned duties.
I will remember that personal goals are secondary to the needs of the victim, their family, and requesting agencies. I will support the concept that Search and Rescue is a team activity and seek to ensure that the best available resources are made available, regardless of affiliation.
If another person does or says something that is offensive to me, I will first try to resolve directly with that person and, if this fails and the issue is worthy of escalation, will discuss with one or more of the team officer(s)
I will honestly represent my abilities and limitations to requesting agencies and other teams with whom we deploy. I will continuously work to improve my personal knowledge and skills and will willingly share such information with others in the spirit of cooperation. I will assess risks accordingly and not place others or myself in unnecessary jeopardy

YEah, it's really hard not to get sucked in because they suck you in without asking you. The only thing you can do is to stand up for your own team and to show them where your loyalty is.
