Background Discussion
Manatee County Search and Rescue is a not for profit 501C3 stationed in Manatee County as a special team of the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. They are a team of all volunteers in a first responder or related military field dedicated to assisting the county and surrounding agencies in aspects of locating missing persons. On May 28, 2017, Search and Rescue members responded to St. Petersburg at the request of the St. Pete Police Department to assist in locating a missing child they believed was special needs. The missing child was located shortly after Search and Rescue units arrived on scene with the thermal imager that was donated to the organization by Bullard Corporation. As a result, Bullard will be presenting a Lifesaving Award to Manatee County Search and Rescue.
