Welcome to our homepage and the wonderful world of Search & Rescue! Let us tell you about our team and our mission:
Florida Alliance of Search and Rescue K-9, Inc. (FASAR K-9, Inc.) is a 501 (c)(3) all volunteer organization. Our services are always FREE and we do not discriminate.
We are a NIMS (National Incident Management System) compliant search and rescue team composed of certified, professionally trained volunteers who provide FREE resources to local law enforcement agencies for the purpose of searching for missing persons, either alive or presumed deceased.
FASAR K-9, Inc. provides urban, wilderness, disaster and water search capability. We have an ATV to assist in the deployment of K-9 teams to the field and two boats designed to accommodate the dog teams for searches on water. We utilize GPS units and Astro Collar GPS units on the dogs during deployments to accurately capture search efforts.
We take a lot of pride in our ability to assist the communities in which we live. We train weekly and attend seminars year round to continue to build our already solid knowledge base. We often open our training for other members of the SAR community to join us and share knowledge. We are always interested in volunteers coming out and playing “victim” for our live find dogs.
If someone you know is lost please ask your local law enforcement to contact us. We can only respond to requests by public agencies.
