Thanks for helping create the biggest network of Offroad volunteers in the US.
Thanks to volunteers like you, we are proud to offer free offroad recoveries in all 50 states...
Offroad Portal’s volunteers are the backbone of our community, working tirelessly to assist in recovery missions. Now you are one of us. Thank you for joining, and welcome aboard.
Our community is growing around the country. In some areas the general public already knows very well of our services, in others not so much. Depending on where you are, you might receive requests near you in a few days or weeks. Please share our recovery address so others know how to submit a request: offroadportal.org/recovery
In the meantime, join our facebook Volunteers group to ask any questions you might have about our system or to suggest new features. You can also share where are you from and introduce yourself to the rest.
Notes about recoveries
If a recovery is needed in your area, we will start by inviting volunteers from 20, 30 miles around the incident. Sometimes we don’t have anybody near, especially in deserted areas or far away from cities. In those cases, we will extend the range and try to reach volunteers that might be 75, 100 or 150 miles away. Keep in mind… if you received an invite on your phone, it means even if you are too far, it was meant for you.
We had recoveries were volunteers drove 250 miles or more in some cases. Those are very rare and extreme, but it happened.
When this happens, is not that we are expecting everybody to drive that far, although some of you might be ok with that, but in some cases we are trying to activate a “network” of volunteers, and ask if they know somebody who might be closer. Everything helps, even just sharing the request.
When deciding to help with a recovery, unless you have plenty of experience, try to work in tandem with another volunteer. In our Lobby, you can leave a note about your intentions to help, you can ask for a partner, and you can decide to mark yourself as viewing, standing by or engaging. Once you mark yourself as engaging you will get access to the contact information of the requester. You will need to contact the requester yourself to coordinate the recovery efforts.
Please always keep us informed. If you are participating in the recovery, try to take some photos. Video helps too. After the recovery is completed, you can submit an email to email@example.com with the information. If we don’t receive anything, we will send you a reminder to your email.
If you want to learn more details about how our system works here is a link to a bunch of articles…
Finally, we need to spread the word. Your next task is to help us grow in your area.
Please make sure to share in your social media platform a link to our website or facebook page and also a link to submit recoveries: offroadportal.org/recovery. Please share with friends, or if you already have a local recovery group, share with your members this link: offroadportal.org/signup so they can also become volunteers.
