Drone – A highly skilled group that uses advanced drone technology for swift emergency response. Comprising expert pilots and operators, they deploy drones with high-resolution cameras and thermal imaging to efficiently cover large areas. This team plays a crucial role in identifying hazards and providing real-time data to ground teams, contributing to rapid and effective search and rescue missions.
Equine / Heavy Animal Rescue – A specialty unit using horses as search partners. Mounted responders can move faster and more easily in certain terrain environments and have the benefit of a higher vantage point than ground searchers. This allows mounted searchers to have a different viewpoint when looking for clues and missing or injured persons. Searchers must be active members of a SAR group and have a sensible mount. Our team is currently under development and always looking for new members.
