GI Joe Search and Rescue Mission
Help Families With Missing Loved Ones
G.I. Joe Search & Rescue provides assistance & resources to local authorities and families with missing loved ones.
Search & Rescue Volunteers
We are a self-activating team of search & rescue volunteers, and we respond when notified of an emergency rescue or recovery mission.
Training and Education
We strive to prevent and assist in emergency rescue situations by 1) preparing and training ourselves with survival and SAR techniques, and 2) educating the public on safety and survival techniques.
Wheels Down For
Boots On The Ground
How search and rescue personnel get to their sectors? One way is by vehicle. However, what if the road is just too rough?
From Jeeps to FJ Cruisers, Hummers and Land Rovers, all are off road capable, but when you upgrade these vehicles with beefed up suspensions and high tech communications you have a roving suppoprt center.
This operation (pictured) has 2 inside (in addition to the driver) and 7 on the rails. Nine full packs and ready to go.
In addition to this principle of mechanized support and team insertion, Land Ops sets up a communication network to support searchers and monitor their progress and well being.
The amateur radio aspect of Land Ops plays a vital role in both private and public search and rescue organizations. Land Ops work hand in hand with GI Joe Search and Rescue to provide these two basic services.
1. Mechanized support and insertion
2. A communication network
