MSART contacts for Emergency Agencies


Since 1974 Massasauga Search and Rescue Team (MSART) has been a volunteer non-profit organization that provides skilled field and search and rescue (SAR) management personnel to assist public safety agencies in searches for lost or missing persons in wilderness, urban, and water settings.

Our team and its specialized resources, including K-9 SAR units, stand ready to respond 24 hours a day to all locations in New York State and to assist other teams in the Northeast. MSART also promotes awareness of outdoor safety through educational demonstrations for the general public, youth groups, and schools.
