    If you're filling out any of the Mission Complete Forms, and they do not work well, or don't even show up, try using Internet Explorer or a different browser.

    I was having issues with the forms showing up at all on Chrome.

    Have an awesome day everyone!

    New Rescue Rider Member ID cards are in process, and as soon as we have any information on when they are ready to send out, we'll send everyone a notification.

    We are also working on a Membership Package, as well as getting our 2015 patches out as soon as we can.  

    So hang tight, more information to come! 

    Thank you for your dedication to the Rescue Rider Mission.  At the end of the day, it's about making a difference.  Each and everyone of you are doing just that.

    As you all may know, we're doing up website updates in the next few weeks. One of the things that has just been added is the ability for us to update your Rescue Riders seniority date in your profile.

    We know how important it is to you that before this new membership program was in place, you were a Rescue Rider for quite a few years.  We have added an original membership date field in your profile, and may update this information for you. 

    If you are one of the original Rescue Riders and have rejoined under the new program, your seniority date does matter to us!

    Please send an email to membership@rescueriders.org, or treasurer@rescueriders.org and we'll update your profile and assign the lower Membership ID number to your profile according to seniority date.

    Thank you for all you do!!!

    Hello Rescue Riders!

    So you're wondering what the difference is between Sanctioned/Registered Missions and Non-Sanctioned Missions. 

    A "Sanction or Registered Mission" is listed on the Events Page, and is a mission that  has been requested by an events coordinator for us to officially provide medical/trauma support in that capacity.  Typically, we would have made arrangements for a Mission Coordinator to manage this event as well as coordinate with the event people to insert Rescue Riders into the ride between groups of motorcyclists to be ready in the event of an incident.  You "should" but are not required register online for these events now, such as MISSION:  2015 Ride Janie Ride so that the Mission Coordinator can quickly check you in, and also add the mission miles credit in your member profile.  We just want to you show up, and it doesn't matter if you register online or not.  However, we would like you to.

    ** YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REGISTER ONLINE TO SHOW UP AT A MISSION.  It would be nice, but in either case, the MC will definitely record your mission miles and participation for you after the mission.

    What if you're a Rescue Rider supporting an event that is not listed on the events page -perhaps you are out of state or supporting in the Rescue Rider medical capacity, an event with another club or chapter that you belong to.  Or providing support for a small group that isn't considered an "event".  Well, then you would log your "mission" in the Members Only Section, under Non-Sanctioned Mission and Incident Form.  A mission like this, for example, would be and out of state mission not listed on the Events Page, or perhaps you were riding with AVMRA, or on another event with a small group of motorcyclists and acting in a Rescue Rider medical support role.

    These non-sanctioned missions will count toward your mission credit miles, for tax purposes as well as our Annual Awards Banquet, that is typically scheduled in January.  

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to respond to this post. 

    Other things we have in the works:

    • Rescue Rider Incident Form (for general incidents).
    • Officers Page with email contact information.
    • Online waivers (with e-verification/e-signatures)
    • Members chat when someone is online.
    • More member collaboration tools.
    • Other exciting member benefits.
    • Safety Page
    • How To Page
    • New Member Process 
    Thank you for being such a dedicated, caring person in your community.

    "We are a rare breed - we have a "calling" and we are answering it."

    Ride safe!  and see you on the next run!

    Hello Members!

    On the Events page, there are a list of Rescue Rider Missions Events that were requested by various organizations for us to be there to provide medical support for illnesses, injuries, or trauma care in the event of an incident.  Not all of them are listed yet.  More missions will be added very soon.  

    It is highly recommended and soon may be required that you register/sign up for missions that you are going to participate in.

    WHAT REGISTERING FOR A MISSION RIDE DOES:

    1. Keeps track of your non-for-profit/volunteer mission miles for tax deduction purposes.
    2. Allows the Mission Coordinator for that particular event to quickly check you in. 
    3. Accumulate mission miles that we can report off for our Annual Rescue Riders Awards Banquet so that we can recognize members with the most missions.
    4. Keeps a record of what missions you have participated in, in your Member Profile.

    HOW TO REGISTER:

    1. Indicate whether you are in training (1st or 2nd time riding in a Rescue Rider mission, where you will be assigned an experienced member to ride with you).  Or indicate that you are just on a Mission Ride.
    2. Fill out the required fields at minimum.
    3. In the Mission Miles field, indicate how many miles the actual mission was (round trip).  This information may be provided in the event information itself. If not, leave this field blank.
    4. You are obviously not going to have your odometer readings yet, but do keep track of your odometer readings on that day and submit to Mission Coordinator or any of the officers.  This information is  also great information for tax deduction purposes.   
    5. That's it! 

    We know there are other Rescue Riders qualified mission credits that you will be doing that are not officially listed here, there is a form on the website to fill out at http://www.rescueriders.org/mission-complete/, which you may log your individual missions here for now.

    Thank you so much for your dedication to serving the community.  There are very few people who are willing to take their personal time to be a part of an organization like this.  We appreciate each and every one of you.  If there is anything you need in any way, please contact one of the officers.  We will be very happy to help you succeed in any way.

    Hello New Members and Existing Members! 

    Welcome to our new members website.  I just wanted to say special each of you are as individuals who are selfless, caring, dedicated, and give our valuable time to help others and help our community.  On behalf of all of the Board of Directors, and Officers, we truly appreciate what you do for this organization.  

    I look forward to seeing you this Saturday at our General Members Meeting.  If you register for the event, you can let others know you're going to be there, and also keep track of the meetings you've attended.  You are not required to register, just show up!  Dinner is on us, so we hope to see you so we can discuss all of the upcoming events and all things Rescue Riders for this riding season. 

    If you ever have a question, or need to get a hold of me, please don't hesitate to contact me at treasurer@rescueriders.org

    I look forward to meeting you all very soon!
