Review for TEXSAR: Texas Search and Rescue, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined TEXSAR a little over six years ago. It was a going concern then of about 50-70 members and I have happily watched it blossom to now over 450 members statewide. As a Senior, I had hesitated to join because I knew I wouldn’t be helpful in the field but I have stayed very busy as a (hopefully) valuable support person. At the time I joined, everyone else wanted to be in the field so they were happy to have someone taking care of the ‘paperwork’. I have enjoyed taking care of my ‘other family’ and plan to stay with them until I’m no longer able.

With our motto being Service Above Self, we are pleased that each of our members fits into that concept before they even join us: former military and law enforcement, as well as Nurses, EMTs, and Paramedics are those who want to help others and we are very happy they want to be a part of our Team!

While the members are volunteers, we are all professional trained and certified through nationally recognized entities. The caliber of talent is amazing, the dedication is amazing, the members themselves are those with whom you feel comfortable and you feel like you’ve found a lot of friends. I recommend this group to any and all who might be interested in what we do - no experience necessary; seriously, we’ll train you!

Review for TEXSAR: Texas Search and Rescue, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having been a member of TEXSAR for just over a year I am constantly impressed with the dedication and professionalism of this group. Once a call for help comes in, team members are on the road for no other reason than to help make sure the person(s) lost or in danger, and their family, has as little concern as possible. Being totally volunteer, these people train, transport, and outfit themselves; the level of commitment is impressive. I feel fortunate to be a part of this group that continually looks for ways to better serve the communities of Texas.
