Search & Rescue
SEARCH AND RESCUE
Search and Rescue (SAR) is the search for and provision of aid to people who are in distress or imminent danger. The general field of search and rescue includes many specialty sub-fields, typically determined by the type of terrain the search is conducted over.
The Montgomery County Search and Rescue Team is a support unit comprised of members of the Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Departments and the local Ambulance Service. The Search and Rescue team responds in a tiered fashion, assisting the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in the search and rescue of individuals injured, lost, or overdue in Montgomery County. Members of the SAR Team are on call 24/7 for any emergency that may arise.
