The North American Public Safety Association of Cavers will be( hopefully) an NSS Affinity Group for cavers that work in law enforcement, fire/rescue, EMT, and park rangers.
Affinity Groups are not considered Internal Organizations of the Society, but are overseen by the I/O Committee. Affinity Groups must have at least ten Society members, who will foster the Society goal of fellowship among those interested in caves, but, unlike sections, with common interests of their members not directly related to speleology.
We aren't a group yet, but well on our way. Ideas for the group would be to be able to get together at regional and national events, discuss issues involving our jobs and law enforcment such as cave closures due to grow operations and meth labs in caves. Mainly its just a social group of like minded folks to get together and cave.
If you know of anyone that is in law enforcement, firefighter, emt/rescue, park ranger, etc (and they can be retired from those fields) point them in my direction. I have started a yahoo group, and I can send them an invite to join. I can be reached at TMR171@aol.com
