Our search & rescue people

Our people

Our Search & Rescue teams are composed of highly trained and dedicated individuals that volunteer their time and expertise to assist local emergency services and law enforcement in finding lost and missing persons. Since 2016, our teams have been working to reunite the missing persons with their loved ones through land and water rescues. We serve people in Arkansas, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Currently our teams are located in Ohio, Arkansas, Illinois, Tennessee,Oklahoma, Virginia, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana and Pennsylvania, with more teams being established. Team members are from Amish, Mennonite, and other conservative Anabaptist communities and have a commitment to hard work and attention to detail. Teams are equipped to be self-sustained, not placing undue burdens on the community dealing with the emergency.
