Northeast Search and REscue(NESAR) has been serving our neighbors and our nation for more than 45 years. Our K9 search units, water rescue/recovery units, and wilderness evac units regularly work emergency searches throughout Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, New Jersey and beyond. Our team members — both human and K9 — have been integral to search and rescue/recovery operations in the aftermaths of the World Trade Center attack, Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Sandy. We are on call 24/7/365. In an average year, we receive calls for approximately 50 searches and log 10,000+ search and training hours.
As an all-volunteer organization, we rely on our fundraising efforts (and very often our own wallets) to finance the equipment, personal gear, and specialized training necessary to fulfill our commitment to the communities that we serve. Your generosity will help us continue to bring home lost and injured people – hikers, campers, hunters, dementia patients, young children (often with special needs) – and respond when your friends and neighbors are threatened by hurricanes, floods, and other disasters in our region.
Donors like you provide the financial and moral support we need to continue our mission. And, our human team members aren’t the only ones who appreciate your support.
