PCSAR typically meets the second Wednesday of each month at the Gritman Medical Center in Moscow, Idaho. Many meetings are in the executive boardroom on the third floor (new part, south section). Sometimes that venue is busy, so we meet in the third floor classroom (old part, west/south section).

In March, PCSAR's annual meeting is usually held at a local restaurant. Contact an officer after the February meeting to find out the location.
In August the practice has been to gather for a potluck supper, with no business meeting.
We try to hold training events the Sunday after the business meeting. Sometimes people's availability shifts the training.
All PCSAR members are expected to complete two online courses related to search management:

|IS-100.a Introduction to Incident Command System, ICS-100||http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS100A.asp||3|
If you have trouble following the links above, use your favorite search engine to search for the course title.
The course can be taken online or you can download the material and study it that way. An online final examination is given. When you pass it you receive an emailed link to a certificate that you should print and save.PCSAR 01/21/2014 (GB).
