Search Team Mission Statement
The mission of the Search and Rescue (SAR) Team is to provide a qualified ground search team for local and mutual aid wilderness search incidents. The SAR Team will be affiliated with Will County Search and Rescue (SAR). The SAR Team will also provide support for community events and non-SAR incidents as appropriate.
Search Team Value Statement
SAR Team volunteers, upon notification, will respond to city situations and mutual aid requests to provide support, consistent with provided training and personal safety. SAR Team volunteers will meet established Illinois Search and Rescue Council and Will County SAR training for a range of potential situations and will meet established levels of personal commitment and response.
