Role: Health and Safety Officer (HSO)
The role of the HSO is dependent on the applicant’s skill level. They must have, at minimum, current first aid and CPR training and they must provide proof of this prior to their crew’s arrival at MDRS.
First responder training is preferred and EMT’s, nurses and doctors are highly desired. This position is also responsible for the operational safety of the crew and the campus.
First aid training can be completed after being selected for the role but must be acquired prior to departure on the mission. This training is generally spread over 8 weeks at a rate of 3 hours per week.
