Sunday 11/24 Baxter State Park SAR thankyou
On 5/14/2012 the York County Emergency Response Rescue Team (YCERRT) was officially disbanded. With the encouragement of our local Game Warden, Rick LaFlame, a few of the YCERRT team members decided form a new team. Bryan Courtois, Larry DeHof and Dan Pierce spearheaded getting the word out and attracting potential team members. On July 25, 2012 a meeting was held at Cabela's in Scarborough and Pine Tree Search and Rescue (PTSAR) was born. At later meetings officers were elected and bylaws were drafted and approved. On 1/23/2013 PTSAR received 501(c)(3) status.
As of 11/17/2019 our team has grown to 49 including 21 MASAR certified Search Team Members and 2 MASAR certified Search Team Leaders We meet about once per month and routinely partner with other teams for trainings and meetings. Our team has a number of Registered Maine Guides, AMC trip leaders, Scout leaders, active duty and retired law enforcement and military, fire fighters, EMTs, and others with vast outdoor experience.
