Search & rescue missions require coordinating a lot of resources, people and equipment in the field in remote locations. TSAR owns and operates one command vehicle and one ranging vehicle that are utilized for Base operations for wilderness search and rescue. The team unit that facilitates Base operations is trained in several areas: resource stategies, communications, navigations and mapping, scribing, record keeping, search strategy and planning, lost person behavior, air support protocols, and the Incident Command System.

While good physical fitness is required for members who work out in the field, it is not required of Base members.
