Funding / Donations

We rely on donations from the community for funding our operations, and have been proud to have served Escambia County and surrounding areas for over 60 years.

cropped-ESAR-logo1.pngEscambia Search And Rescue is 100% VOLUNTEER and 100% FUNDED BY DONATIONS FROM THE COMMUNITY or the occasional grant that we receive.

Please click on ESAR Volunteer Testimonial Video to hear from our volunteers.

While we work very closely with federal, state and local law enforcement and other public safety agencies, we are a 501c3 Charitable Organization and do not receive tax dollars to cover the cost of responding to missions, training, or maintaining our vehicles, vessels, gear and equipment.  Any donation that you can make is greatly appreciated.
