Experienced search and rescue personnel wished to form an agency run by a panel of law enforcement & professional emergency response directors. In 2001 Search and Rescue of Michigan (SAROM) was formed under that basic design. Our team consists of professionally trained volunteers that attend sessions regularly for search work in areas such as: dog handling, communications, field scouting, incident command, First Aid/CPR, mapping crime scene preservation, record keeping, navigation and public relations. Our directors meet quarterly. Volunteers attend mandatory monthly drills as well as weekly to tri-weekly individual training sessions and various seminars to be among the very best search and rescue personnel.
