Our Core Values
Excellence in Training
PRSAR achieves excellence through consistent training preparing our volunteers continually by increasing their skills using up to date materials and equipment in order to deliver the highest quality search volunteer possible.
Ethics, Integrity and Responsibility
PRSAR is founded on solid values and ethical behavior modeled by our members. Our commitment extends from our organization as we work with other agencies, and the community we serve.
PRSAR will meet or exceed the level of service expected by the requesting agency or private family, while ensuring the safety and well-being of our volunteers and partners.
We maintain an environment of mutual respect founded on open and honest communication. We recognize the diversity of not only our team but also the perspectives of other Agencies, Search & Rescue teams and individuals for the purpose of working together to achieve our common goals.
We emphasize fiscal transparency and accountability by ensuring that all expenditures reflect the trust placed in PRSAR by its donors and grant providers.
Social Media Policy
PRSAR does not post search results on the internet or on any social media platform. This is a personal matter and out of respect for the family we will remain silent. Volunteers at PRSAR must sign a confidentiality agreement that includes strict rules on social media posting. At times, the media does mention PRSAR in their news reports and we will repost those mentions to our social media platforms.
