NEMSAR Appreciates Your Help & Participation

Participation in a volunteer organization is a big commitment for everyone.  We recognize that not everyone can make major time commitments.  There are several ways for an individual to participate and help NEMSAR achieve its goals of rescuing people.  The following are some things to consider when deciding how you can help.

NEMSAR does not receive any federal or state funding and relies solely on its members and the financial generosity of citizens such as your self to help us achieve our mission.


Do you have a piece of equipment to donate?  We are always looking for ways to keep our expenses down.  Any materials from paper to used ATV would be enormously helpful in our mission. Contact us about any materials you could donate.

Skills – Non-Rescue Related

We are always looking for help with a variety of tasks.  Bookkeeping, website skills, and marketing skills just to name a few.  If you are interested in supporting NEMSAR and are a people person you can also help at events.

Financial Support

If time is an issue and you have the financial resources a donation of any size would be greatly appreciated.  Because NEMSAR is a self-funded organization we keep a tight line on our budget and make due with the bare essentials.  We take financial contributions with gratitude and in turn spend those dollars in a responsible way.

Because we are a non-profit group your donation is tax deductible.

You can donate to NEMSAR in the following ways:

  • Mail a check to NorthEast Mobile Search And Rescue, at PO BOX 2537, Schenectady, NY 12325
  • Donate online using PayPal.
    • PLEASE NOTE: If making an online donation from an invoice you received in the mail, please click on “add special instructions” and put your account number in the box. Thank you!

Volunteer for Search and Rescue

A candidate for this area of participation needs to be prepared for the time commitment involved in becoming part of the search and rescue team.  We welcome all candidates who are interested.  Even if you are not sure that you can meet the requirements to work with our other volunteers on this level you may still have other ways of participation that could be extremely helpful.  Contact our staff to learn more about becoming a member of our rescue team.
