Night is approaching........

and the temperature is dropping quickly. Alone in the woods, you have somehow become separated from your camping party. You've spent hours trying to find your way back....now you are surely lost, as well as cold, tired, hungry and frightened. You sit beneath a large tree, gathering leaves, dirt and brush around you trying to keep warm. Your thirst is overwhelming. you wonder if you will live until morning. Darkness falls. Then without warning, you see a flicker of light, hear the crashing of branches and are suddenly descended upon by a large dog wearing an orange vest bearing the word "RESCUE" Her handler is not far behind bringing food, water, first aid and your survival.

Congratulations to the 2016 WSAR officers.

This year Wilderness Search and Rescue celebrates 35 years of service to the communities in NYS. Members have been training and learning how to better manage and execute search incidents since our inception. We want to thank not on the NYS Forest Ranger, NYS Troopers, County and Local Law Enforcement, Local Fire Service, but also the communities we serve for supporting our efforts. Without your generous support we could not keep doing this in the level needed to effectively manage and execute a search incident. Thank you.
