What We Do

Wilderness

Our team is equipped to search, manage, or assist in missing incidents with mapping and tracking capabilities to efficiently search and log searched areas. We also have our own portable repeaters capability to insure communication in remote areas.

Disaster

Our team is available to assist in the aftermath of tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. We can assist with clearing areas and searching for survivors as well as tracking and managing the search and recovery efforts. Our team is trained to use the NIMS framework as well as the FEMA marking system for seamless integration with other teams.

Missouri SAR Team

About Our Team

The Missouri Search and Rescue Team was established in March of 2019. We are funded entirely by donations so our services are at no cost to the recipients. Our team consists of 30 members dedicated to helping to locate and rescue lost persons while providing stability and support to distressed loved ones.

Our training, equipment, and experience enable us to manage large searches including providing Incident Command, conduct wilderness grid searches, record detailed records with GPS mapping and tracking (especially important for ongoing searches), supply management and coordination of civilian volunteers. Each of our team members are required to complete and maintain a minimum level of training certifications including CPR, Wilderness First Aid, ICS 100 & 700, and an extensive Search and Rescue course. Many of our members have SARTECH II and numerous others certifications. Our lineup of equipment and expertise is continually increasing.

Our aim is to be the link between the missing person and the EMS/Law enforcement officials by assisting at any level from simply providing more  boots-on-the-ground to conducting complete search operations. We aspire to share God s love and care to distressed persons through our practical support and efforts.
