The Eureka Fire Protection District is committed to delivering the highest quality Fire Protection, Prevention, Education, Community Service and effective mitigation of fire, rescue, emergency medical and other hazardous situations while remaining economically responsible to the Community.
The Eureka Fire Protection District has a Search and Rescue Team that consists of Canine, Mounted, Ground, and Communications elements. The team is comprised of about 35 volunteers including nurses, businessmen, firefighters, police, and contractors.
The Search and Rescue Team was formed in 2002 after the Eureka Fire Protection District recognized that there was a need for trained volunteers when searching for lost, injured, or missing persons. It has grown from a mounted only unit to a multi-disciplined, self sufficient search team with its own communications and support capabilities along with trained planning and management personnel.
The team has Search & Rescue expertise in Incident Command / Search Operations, Communications, Mounted Search, Canine Search, and Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue.
All team members train year round in backcountry travel including map and compass, global positioning system (GPS) use, communications, first aid, evidence preservation, and search and rescue operations.
Members of the team carry pagers or cell phones so that all members can be instantly notified of a search call-out. When dispatched, each member of the team responds to the search area with their equipment, first aid supplies, and two-way radios for communication with search coordinators and other team members.
Law Enforcement and Fire Departments across Missouri and western Illinois have repeatedly requested our Search & Rescue teams to assist in all manner of searches and other incidents requiring trained searchers.
Searches include locating downed aircraft, lost hunters, hikers, or children, crime scene / evidence searches, and other emergency or disaster situations.
