"JF to the Rescue"

After reading the "wow jk rollover story" i am truly inspired by the guys on that forum.

I think the mods should add a "search and rescue" forum to the site.

I know i would help with every situation i could and im sure im not the only one.

Anyone with me??

BTW, If you havnt seen that thread its worth a look

JF is too big, most members are also members of local smaller forums and groups for these such things, i know my local "club" tulsaoffroad.com, we have a "recovery" thread....its a good idea though.

If we're going to get this to actually happen. We'll probably need a spokesperson or leader(no i'm not volunteering). We'll need alot more people to help push for the idea. And we'll have to talk to the mods in a professional kind of manner, not like we normally hoot and holler on the forum board.

Oh, and we'll have to keep pressing forwards toward it, but not so much to get on the mods nerves.

I guess it's a matter of opinion.

But I'd start by doing preliminary work. Recruitment and establishment. Get yourself organized. Make it real, not just internet typing.

Then I'd present this idea fully backed up with facts/people to the head man himself. I wouldn't talk to anyone but the big cheese, not all these other moderators. (I love you mod gods btw). Ultimately it's going to be up to Keith what happens, and the other mods seem to have different thoughts on different issues. Some will like it, some won't. Just like the reast of us.

Wow what an article...That is a true jeep club. I would love to see something like this in JF maybe organized under the state or regional links since I would have no shot of helping in AZ when I live in NC. There used to be a club called Jeep Rescue .org. It was a group of volunteers across the us who would assist in SAR missions for local law enforcement agencies who did not have alot of resources. Sadly I think it went under due to fears of liability issues if someone did get hurt. It is a said day when people get discouraged to help due to folks who will sue your pants off your kids for trying to be a good American.

We would need to set up an alert system for varying degrees of help needed. Then an email or text message to go to responders phones and email accounts. As well as setting a CB or ham radio channel for member to meet up on once in the area and responding.

Just brainstorming...love the idea.. I pitched something similar to the Carolina Jeepsters after I saw the video on the net about jeepers using there vehicle in sever weather to get emergency workers into the hospitals. The answer I got was we don't need to do that because it never snows here. Then about a month ago it did snow and Raleigh was looking for people to drive.

I am trying to find out how they made it work on the other forum.... They were able to email and text just from posting a new urgent thread in the S&R section.

I agree that it should be located within the regonal areas for obvious reasons, but i dont know how often they are really checked. I am subscribed to mine but idk about most of the users?

Any thoughts?

JF has members from clubs across the us. We need to get as many clubs across the US to lend a hand in developing the SOP for the rescue groups. Many I am sure already have some sort of setup and would probably love to help set up a larger system. Then we can try and get them all to tie together. It could be like AAA for jeep owners.

JF should have just a section for volunteer jeep owners to serve in there area.
