Emergency Response Team Search and Rescue (ERTSAR) is an INSARAG listed international disaster response charity and Non-Government Organisation with bases in Henley-on-Thames, United Kingdom and Toronto, Canada.

Established to relieve suffering and distress among persons affected by hazards, risks, emergencies and disasters across the globe. ERTSAR provides emergency and disaster response, search and rescue and medical teams to deploy and respond to help others, reduce suffering, preserve life and establish a place of safety where possible to aid recovery.

ERTSAR’s operational members cross-train in multiple specialist and advanced subjects such as search, technical and high angle rescue, swift water and flood rescue, whilst also developing a strong base in International Emergency Response and our role in the global Disaster Response Cycle.

As well as being an International Disaster Response Team, ERTSAR is also a DEFRA listed Asset / Flood Response team in the UK and also responds to high-risk despondent missing person searches alongside the police service.

Our vision is a safer, more secure and prepared world against emergencies and disasters of all kinds.
