The FSSAR Workshop usually held in April will not be held this
year. We are reconsidering dates and will announce it when
a decision has been made. Thanks!
Four States Search and Rescue, Inc. is based in Texarkana, Texas and is a non-
profit 501(c)3 organization. Originally established in 1993, the unit reorganized in 2007
and is primarily a canine search group, working in the search disciplines of trailing, air
scenting and human remains detection on land and water.
Our members are volunteers dedicated to assisting in the search of lost or missing
persons on the land and in the water with specialty trained canine teams. The unit
deploys at the request of local, state or federal law enforcement agencies or offices
of emergency management.
FSSAR cannot conduct a missing person search at the request of private individuals.
As civilian volunteers, FSSAR teams cannot respond in instances of criminal pursuit
searches that may present a threat to a dog team. However, some of our members
are affiliated with law enforcement agencies and may work on cases as private
The unit accepts calls within an average 100 mile radius of Texarkana at no
cost to the requested agency.
Four States Search and Rescue is also available to give programs and
demonstrations for schools or civic organizations.
