Welcome to Samaritan Emergency Medical Search and Rescue.
SEMSAR is a not-for-profit Christian based organization specializing in search and rescue, law enforcement/security operations, and emergency medical services. Our command staff is comprised of individuals with experience at all levels of public safety in Emergency Medicine, Fire/Rescue, Law Enforcement, SWAT, Hazardous Materials, Search and Rescue, and Nursing. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and undergo intensive training prior to participating in actual law enforcement, medical, and rescue operations. SEMSAR is loosely based on a military-style command structure and personnel observe several aspects of standard military etiquette. Search and rescue operations can easily be life or death situations, and this particular structure serves us well in enforcing discipline and maintaining order in stressful environments. This structure also enhances camaraderie and reinforces to the individual member that he/she belongs to something greater than themselves. An organization founded on the importance of life itself in a world desperate for meaning.
