TEXSAR - In the Community - March 2019

Supporter of the Quarter - Texas Disposal Systems

TEXSAR is surrounded by some pretty incredible people. We simply could not do what we do with out all of the support around us. We are pleased to kick off our newest honorary program, Supporter of the Quarter. Each quarter we will be featuring individuals, organizations and companies outside of the organization that impact TEXSAR in a meaningful way. 
 
Meet our 1st Supporter of the Quarter - Texas Disposal Systems

TDS and the Gregory Family are true supporters of TEXSAR. For the 2nd year in a row their family has graciously invited TEXSAR out to their gorgeous facilities at the Texas Disposal Systems Exotic Game Ranch and Pavilion to host the Clay Pigeon Pachanga. They are truly generous hosts and we look forward to working with them for years to come. 

Thank you TDS, your support means the world to TEXSAR!

Atlas 767 Cargo Jet Deployment
Wednesday, February 27th, 2019, TEXSAR was requested by the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office to deploy to Trinity Bay, where the Atlas 767 Cargo Jet crashed Saturday, February 23rd. The plane went down near Beach City, Texas in the Bay area and the initial request from CCSO was for TEXSAR to deploy trained members in the specialties of GSAR, for the shoreline, Rescue Boat Operators, Flood and Swiftwater Techs, paddlers and Human Remains Detection K9's. 55 TEXSAR members deployed over the course of five days and served with members from Beach City Fire Department, City of Beach City, TDEM, NTSB, FBI, and USACE. . A big thank you to all of these agencies and their hard work, we feel honored to have served by your side. 

When TEXSAR deploys we are prepared to be self-sufficient for the entire deployment. We were overwhelmed by the support from citizens  and businesses of Beach City, Texas and their generous contributions and efforts to keep us fed.. Proper meals allow our teams the fuel needed to keep pushing through a search. A special thank you to Evonne Donnelly, Valerie Fite, Tri City Beach Grocery, The City of Beach City, Judge Jimmy Sylvia, Chief Shawn Hawthorne, Lt. Henry, Mary Dunn, Sherry Ray, Marge Bercaw, Carol Pickering and Donna Muir. Supporters like you allow TEXSAR to respond when the call comes in.

Our sincerest thoughts and condolences go out to the families of those who lost their lives in this tragic crash.
