SARRT Search and Rescue Response Team is a non-profit organization formed with the purpose of providing a highly trained and equipped resource to aid law enforcement in their tasks of finding and rescuing missing persons. SARRT's founding members have come from law enforcement organizations and existing search and rescue teams. These organizations do incredible work for their communities and with their aide to law enforcement, but sometimes a more specialized skill set is required for higher risk situations with more adverse conditions.
Training and vigilance are at the core of being prepared for the worst and bringing help to those who need it. SARRT members participate in regular training exercises in wilderness search, K9 SAR, orienteering, medical first aid/response, wilderness survival, communications, crime scene preservation, mountain rescue, and logistics. All of SARRT's training sessions are open to members of other search and rescue teams and law enforcement. We are all working toward the same goal and we will do whatever we can to make all who share our cause as prepared as they can possibly be when they're deployed.
We are always looking for more members. There are many positions to be filled on a search and rescue team both in and out of the field. For active field members, there are training and fitness requirements to ensure member safety when deployed, however there are many other positions that don't take place in the field. Our active field members need a strong support team at Incident Command and outside of deployments to help them do their job, and those members' jobs are just as important. If you're skilled in radio communications, accounting, organization, planning, cooking, or fundraising then we can use your help. If you think you can be a contributing member of our team then please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our Get Involved page for more information. It's a great way to serve your community to an extent that exceeds what many are able to do on their own. As a team, we make each other stronger, and reach our goals together.
