Eastern Shore Ground
Search and Rescue is a community-based volunteer emergency response
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.
|ESGSAR has a training committee
of professional, dedicated personnel who spend a great deal of time
fine tuning and presenting training programs to our team members.
All of these programs have theory and practice components.
