Our volunteers come to us from all walks of life and are brought together by a common purpose. That purpose is to serve our communities and our state by providing requesting agencies with a highly trained, autonomous search and rescue team. TEXSAR has grown to be the largest wildland search and rescue organization in the State of Texas, but that growth has never come at the expense of the quality of the services we provide. Our searchers may all be volunteers, but they are held to the highest standards and train year round so that they are ready when the next call comes.
We are always looking for new volunteers to join the team. No previous search and rescue experience is required. TEXSAR will help you get training and make sure you are fully qualified before your first deployment with the team. If you are passionate about helping your community and would like to be a part of a team of like-minded individuals, we urge you to come checkout one of our meetings to see if TEXSAR is the right place for you to serve.
If you are ready to join the team, we encourage you to review the TEXSAR requirements, visit a local meeting (event calendar), and complete the online Membership Application. Our Membership Team will review your application and reach out to you with information about the next steps in the process.
