Search and Rescue

Search and rescue (SAR) is the search for and provision of aid to people who are in distress or imminent danger.

The general field of search and rescue includes many specialty sub-fields, typically determined by the type of terrain the search is conducted over. These include Mountain rescue; ground search and rescue, including the use of search and rescue dogs; urban search and rescue in cities; combat search and rescue on the battlefield and air-sea rescue over water.

Famous quotes containing the words rescue and/or search:

    Whether your child is 3 or 13, don’t rush in to rescue him until you know he’s done all he can to rescue himself.
    Barbara F. Meltz (20th century)

    Within us, the people of the United States, there is evident a serious and purposeful rekindling of confidence, and I join in the hope that when my time as your President has ended, people might say this about our Nation: That we had remembered the words of Micah and renewed our search for humility, mercy, and justice.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
