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 in finding the lost and missing. Since 2016, they have been working to reunite the missing with their loved ones.
Search and rescue team

Our teams

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.
Search and rescue equipment

Our equipment

Each team has a command trailer equipped with computers, mapping software, GPS units, communications system (handheld radios and repeater), and more. We also have rescue boats with high quality SONAR for water searches and rescues. When Hurricane Harvey struck Texas, our rescue boats were kept busy rescuing 429 people from floodwaters.
