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 the citizens of eastern New york, Vermont, western Massachusetts and the greater Capital Region with properly trained and equipped rescuers in land-based Search and Rescue (SAR) operations and underwater rescues and recoveries.


If you are looking for something "outside of the box" and not as formal as a fire department or and EMS agency, then the Team may be a place for you!! Looking to specialize in rope rescue, water rescue, dive rescue/recovery, and/or land-based Search and Rescue (SAR)?? The Team may be what you're looking for!!

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!
