Welcome to Berkshire Mountain Search and Rescue - So that others may live.
BMSAR is an all volunteer, not-for-profit Search and Rescue Team, based in Western Massachusetts. We are available 24 hours a day for missing person searches in Western Massachusetts and the surrounding area. The team can provide trained search and rescue personnel, K-9 search teams, search management and other related resources, free of charge.
The Berkshire Mountain Search and Rescue Team was created in 1977 by a group of dedicated people to fill a need in Berkshire County and the State of Massachusetts. At that time, there was no organization in the county, trained in modern search techniques and management. In the last 30+ years we have participated in 100's of searches for missing people throughout Massachusetts and the surrounding states.
BMSAR can be contacted for callouts only via the Berkshire County Police/Fire Mutual Aid Center at (413) 442-0512 or (413) 445-4559 or by contacting the Massachusest State Police.In an an emergency dial 911
