Are circumstances causing you to take a break from patrolling?

Contact your Region Alumni Advisor and learn the alternatives you have to maintain your OEC certification and return to active patrolling.

What Every Patroller Needs To Know About Alumni

Occasionally, life and circumstances get in the way of the things we love to do. When this happens, you have those who can provide information to help you stay connected to patrolling and make decisions that leave you options for returning to patrolling when appropriate.

Every region in the division has an Alumni Advisor who can help you. Contact them to start a conversation, or contact me, Allan Miller, Eastern Division’s Alumni Advisor, and we will guide you.  Our goal is to help all NSP members stay patrolling or get back into patrolling without losing the certifications earned over the years.
