SARCI is a non-profit corporation that coordinates five all-volunteer local search and rescue groups serving Tucson, Pima County and Southern Arizona which provide their services without charge. Through SARCI the skills of these five teams are combined into a unified, professional resource available to local law enforcement and emergency service agencies primarily in Pima County, but also available upon request to participate in SAR missions throughout the United States and the Republic of Mexico.
SARCI members are highly trained search and rescue volunteers who donate thousands of hours of time to missions including wilderness searches, technical rescues, cave rescues, equestrian rescues, water rescues and recoveries, and search dog operations, as well as continuous ongoing training. SARCI members are also available to present two nationally recognized programs to interested groups; Hug-A-Tree and Lost…But Found Safe and Sound. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a presentation for your group.
To learn more about each group, please visit the pages on our web site or check out the current issue of our SARNews newsletter. We also invite you to watch this informative piece produced in 2015 by the amazing folks at Arizona Public Media.
