Be a student of your craft to better serve others

When I started my SAR journey there was no standard or certification for searchers in Texas.  I found NASAR with the SAR-Tech certification program and began promoting it to improve the quality of the field assets used in missing person searches. Founding my team (First Response Search and Rescue) in 1994 to require SAR-Tech as a minimum standard we were recognized by the State of Texas.

NASAR continues to be a leader in educations and certification. No one else comes close to promoting the professional development of volunteer SAR assests.  

NASAR makes a difference... so others may live.
