Tri-County Search And Rescue was started in late 2007. Although we provide services free of charge we do request that call-outs come from either OEM officials or law enforcement. Our team is composed of volunteers from Ashley, Chicot, and Desha County. Although we are in rural Southeast Arkansas we will respond outside our area as needed free of charge to both departments and families of missing persons. Training requirements for K9 Handlers include: CPR, Crime Scene Preservation, OSHA BloodBorne Pathogens Certification, First Aid, NASAR's SARTECH Certification, Hazmat training and K9 first aid. We are members of the National Association of Search and Rescue (NASAR) and are NIMS compliant.
