About Us

Eastern Shore Ground Search and Rescue is a community-based volunteer emergency response organization.
Our purpose is to find and rescue lost person(s). ESGSAR's territory covers from Porter`s Lake to Mooseland and up the Meagher`s Grant Rd.(Hwy.357) to Crawford`s Bridge. Our team can also provide assistance to teams outside our area when requested.
We have just procured a bus that has been refitted from a school bus to a command/logistics vehicle for our team when out on searches.
