Brazos Valley Search and Rescue

Brazos Valley Search & Rescue (BV SAR) is a subcommittee of the Brazos County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). It’s mission is to coordinate and provide when requested Search & Rescue assets to Brazos and the surrounding counties specifically Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Leon, Madison, Milam, Robertson and Washington. The Search & Rescue assets come from Bryan FD, College Station FD, Texas Parks and Wildfire and Volunteers Canine Search Teams.

All Search & Rescue assets are available at no cost to you and will fall under your Incident Command System. We would prefer that we are contacted by your Agency Having Jurisdiction over the incident, normally your local Law Enforcement or your Emergency Manager.
