Information on Search & Rescue

Ottawa County Search and Rescue members respond to requests through Ottawa County Central Dispatch to Ottawa County Emergency Management for assistance with locating a missing person. These volunteers are highly trained in grid search techniques and field first-aid to locate and assist a victim or patient until a professional first responder arrives. They are capable of their own means of communication via amateur radio and work often together with the Ottawa County Amateur Radio Auxiliary (OCARA) to provide services.
