What We Do


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.


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 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.

As I prayed – I heard something above me and I called out “I’m down here”. I remember hearing “we’re coming!” and I was ready to keep living. I remember seeing your faces on the hill. It was dark, but your faces shined like beams of light and hope. I can’t express in words to thank you enough for my second chance at living for Jesus.

Thanks again for all you do when people are at their lowest times of their life! I know it was certainly appreciated by the family!!

Thanks to God & you, she was found alive!! There are no words to adequately express our gratitude & appreciation for your amazing work! To God be the glory!! Thank you for helping people in distress all over the world. May God bless you all!
