Midwest Search & Rescue is committed to assisting response agencies in acquiring and sustaining the specialized equipment needed for response. This includes equipment such as personal protective equipment; search cameras; acoustical listening devices; heavy rescue equipment; water/flood rescue equipment; and other specialized equipment that may be needed.
We intend to accomplish this by:
- Providing operational expertise to equipment vendors and manufacturers that will help in the development and improvement of the equipment used by first responders.
- Encouraging equipment vendors and manufacturers to support local and regional conferences and other training where they can network and interact with first responders.
- Providing an avenue where individuals, businesses, or foundations can make tax deductible financial or in-kind donations to provide equipment for first responders.
