Welcome to TSAR!
Tidewater Search and Rescue (TSAR) is an all-volunteer Search, Rescue and
Recovery organization. TSAR provides specially trained professional volunteers
to find lost or missing people in wilderness, rural or disaster environments.
We train and employ Ground Support, Field Team Sign Cutters, and Search Management teams
in a wide variety of environments and weather conditions, including farmland,
wilderness, and urban areas. We deploy our resources when requested throughout
Virginia and adjacent States including WV, PA, MD, NC and DE. We can assist in
rescue and recovery operations conducted in the aftermath of man-made or natural
disaster. TSAR is formally recognized by the Virginia Department of Emergency
Management (VDEM) as a state resource for search, rescue and recovery operations.
TSAR is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
