ASRC MEMBER TEAMS.
The Mountaineer Area Rescue Group (MARG) is one of seven members of the Appalachian Search and Rescue Conference (ASRC), a community of wilderness rescue groups spanning across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. The Appalachian Search and Rescue Conference (ASRC) is a confederation of wilderness search and rescue organizations who provides professional volunteers trained in search management and field operations for missions in the mid-Atlantic region. Our missions include searching for and rescuing lost persons , primarily in the great outdoors. We also assist with other outdoor emergencies including cave rescues and technical (requiring the use of rope) evacuations. Our group is composed of experts in many fields including search tactics, search management, the Incident Command System, communications, and wilderness first aid.
