WEST GEORGIA MOUNTED SEARCH AND RESCUE, Inc.
We are sad to announce that one of our original members Darlene McCarthy passed away September 10th, 2018. Darlene had been battling brain cancer for several years. She was a tremendous help when we started WGMSAR and quite a few of the procedures that we use today are because of her guidance and direction. She will be greatly missed. There is a Celebration of Life for her on October 7th, 2018 at the Franklin GA 1st Baptist Church at 3 pm.
People get hurt and lost all the time. Most of the available resources are provided by law enforcement and other county agencies. Our function is to assist them in expanding their search and rescue efforts in the hope that we can locate missing and injured persons more effectively and with greater speed.
“Our priority is service so that others may live”

UPDATE: WGMSAR has just entered into a new generation of communications for our searches. We have upgraded our repeater to a Kenwood 850 plus a new 7-foot antenna and the necessary power supply and duplex needed to complete the package. Loudon Communication in Douglasville build our new repeater and we are looking forward to having better communications for our training and searches. This was all made possible by a donation from Kim Duke of Freight Air & Sea Transport of Morrow. GA. WGMSAR certainly appreciates Kim and her company for all their help and belief in our cause in helping Law Enforcement when needed. Thanks, Kim.

4th of July 2016 Parade at Carrollton, GA. Our WGMSAR team and horses were the only horses allowed in the parade. The spectators were very appreciative of the service that we provide to the community. The team members did a great job representing our organization.
