Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Niagara Frontier Search and Rescue (NFSAR). NFSAR is a non-profit, all-volunteer SAR team dedicated to providing rural and wilderness search and rescue and outdoor safety education to the citizens of Western NY. The team is also a member of the New York State Federation of Search and Rescue (NYSFEDSAR), an umbrella organization that coordinates search and rescue resources supporting NYS DEC Forest Rangers and law enforcement organizations across all of New York State.
After careful consideration, we have elected to postpone the Basic Search & Rescue Training Academy that was intended to run from January to June, 2022. This decision best permits us to focus on completing the basic training program which was disrupted by the pandemic in 2020. We are not accepting applications for membership right now, as a result. When the time comes (likely summer of 2022), we will publicize our intent to induct new members, with an explanation of the process.
As we get closer to that time we will post information here and at our Facebook page about the membership process for that new membership cycle. In the meantime you can follow us on Facebook (search for Niagara Frontier Search and Rescue) to stay current with our training, missions and general SAR news.
Thank you again for your interest in NFSAR.
