Mission Statement

The Tri-State Emergency Team is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that was formed in 1958. It is our mission to provide wild land and underwater searches within an 100 mile radius of Waterford, NY. This includes properly trained and equipped rescuers in land-based Search and Rescue (SAR) operations and underwater rescues and recoveries. . The Tri-State Emergency Team responds when requested by NYS Forest Rangers and other police agencies throughout New York State, Western Vermont, and Massachusetts.


We are looking for certified scuba divers, experienced boat handlers, and people who enjoy hiking and the outdoors in general and who wish to help people in need. The Team will provide training and complete support as needed. Our headquarters is located in Waterford. Applicants need not live in Waterford to Volunteer. If interested, please call 518-237-6744 or visit our website at www.tri-stateemergencyteam.org

One of the most dedicated and professional group you may ever meet. Working miracles on a small budget. Been a member since 1976. Nuff said.

I responded to a newspaper ad looking for volunteers for the TriState Emergency Team. I found the group to be motivated to be a professional team, as well as fun to be with. The training we get is topnotch and I feel confident the team operates as professionals. I am proud to be associated with this group.

This is a very organized group dedicated to search and rescue. My wife and I joined about a month ago and are very happy to be a part of the team!
