Search & Rescue Team Informational Meeting

Published on September 06, 2013 by Larry Crippen

To find out if there are local citizens interested in volunteering to form a search and rescue team in Walker County to assist law enforcement, East Texas Mounted Search & Rescue from Centerville is holding an informational meeting at the Walker County Storm Shelter on Thursday, September 12th, at 5:30.

All those who own a horse, truck, or trailer in the county are invited.

Walker County Emergency Coordinator Butch Davis has passed along to the media that it’s “not county operated” but guided by East Texas Mounted Search & Rescue.  It’s all volunteer, and participants “have to pass their riding inspections.”

Those who don’t ride can be a part by providing trucks, trailers, or ATV’s.  Others, with handheld devices for communication, can participate.
