Arkansas SAR Team

About Our Team

The Arkansas Search & Rescue team was established in August 2016. Our team members are from conservative Christian communities and are passionate about helping others.

Our goal is to be an effective resource to assist local law enforcement, EMS, fire departments, park services, and other responsible agencies with missing person searches.

We strive to maintain proficiency in our skills and work hard to stay current in training and equipment. Since our team is volunteer based, we do not charge for our services. Our ultimate goal is to show the compassion and love of Christ to people in distress.
