SarOrganizer - The online toolbox for Search & Rescue. Login


This site was created to be a easy to use management system for SAR teams. Made by SAR people for SAR people. The end goal is to give SAR teams everything they need to manage their team and communicate both with their members and other groups. We use API's from,, twillio to provide a feature rich system without compromises. Want to see a feature added? Contact us.

This site is currently being made fine tuned to the needs of my current SAR teams, but I am always open to suggestions. The end goal is a platform that works for all SAR teams around the country, of every discipline. If you wish to start using the site for your team (and help us beta test) please let us know.
