SARTEC stands for Search and Rescue Technicians. All members receive extensive training in search operations, emergency first aid, and crime scene preservation. Members are trained to operate in a rescue/disaster environment for an extended period of time.

Members are NIMS (National Incident Management System) compliant. This allows us to quickly and easily coordinate search and rescue efforts with local, state, federal, and tribal agencies under the guidance of the Incident Commander.

SARTEC imports and recruits experts of different agencies and groups for advanced team training. And Members attend national and regional Seminars for advanced individual training.
