Search and Rescue Team

The Williamson County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (WCARES) Search and Rescue (SAR) Team consists of trained volunteers dedicated to supporting the SAR needs of Williamson and surrounding counties. Like the ARES from which it was born, WCARES SAR exists to support the Williamson County (Tennessee) Emergency Management Agency (WCEMA). The main objective of WCARES SAR is to provide trained and equipped volunteers to aid WCEMA in the search and recovery of missing persons in Middle Tennessee.

WCARES SAR was created in 2015. For more information, contact
