Massasauga Search and Rescue Team (MSART) is a volunteer non-profit organization that provides skilled field and search and rescue (SAR) management personnel to assist public safety agencies in searches for lost or missing persons in wilderness, urban, and water settings. Our team and its specialized resources, including K-9 SAR units, stand ready to respond 24 hours a day to all locations in New York State and to assist other teams in the Northeast. MSART also promotes awareness of outdoor safety through educational demonstrations for the general public, youth groups, and schools. MSART will be covering: - Staying found and what to do if you are lost - What is Massasauga Search and Rescue and what do we do. - What every person should know before going for a walk in the woods. - What you should always have on you before venturing out into the woods. - What to do if you are lost? - The 24hr pack of a Search and Rescue volunteer.
