TEXSAR: Texas Search and Rescue has been a significant leader in disaster response and recovery in the great state of Texas for more than a decade. TEXSAR serves all citizens of Texas and deploys at the request of local and state law enforcement, fire service and emergency management agencies, the Office of the Governor, and relief organizations. During 2016, TEXSAR responded to call-outs 48 times. Our member-volunteers helped look for missing persons, aided in body recovery searches, participated in cold cases, acted as a force multiplier to other agencies during peak events, and continue to search for two missing children from the Memorial Day 2015 flooding on the Blanco River. We were instrumental in aiding the National Transportation Safety Board with evidence collection and photo documentation during the Caldwell County Hot Air Balloon disaster.
