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 nationally 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. has canines nationally certified to provide urban, wilderness, disaster and water search capabilities. We have an ATV to assist during deployments of K-9 teams to the field and two boats equipped with side scan sonar 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 Florida. We train weekly, attend seminars and host seminars year round to offer learning opportunities to other SAR resources while we continue to build our knowledge and skills. We are always interested in volunteers coming out to play “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.
