About Our Team

Overview

Search One Rescue Team is a volunteer non profit organization founded in 1983 by Paul Lake. The team was incorporated in the State of Texas in 1985 as a Non-Profit Community Service Organization and by the Federal Government under section 501-(c) (3) as a 509-(a) (1) Tax Exempt Non-Profit Organization.

The Search One “organization” is managed much like that of a typical commercial business. There is a Board of Directors who oversees the goals and direction of the team and daily business is conducted by a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Search One membership is recruited at large from the communities we serve and each recruit is subject to extensive screening prior to acceptance into the organization.

The Search One “team” is managed during field operations by the National Incident Command Structure (ICS). This allows our command staff to merge and interact with other emergency agencies during large scale incidents if required. Training for field deployment is extensive and all recruits are required to undergo Search One’s basic training program prior to deployment on actual searches. Having served more than 120 agencies (below) over the past 25 years our team has established excellent working relationships with the emergency response community. Search One is considered a valuable resource from the small rural law enforcement agency to the City of Dallas Office of Emergency Preparedness and every type of response unit in between.
