    Important Notification

A group calling themselves Long Island Emergency Rescue which is headed by Raymond MacQuill 
is in no way nor ever will be a part of this organization. While there can be some confusion because the names of both organizations are similar, they are in fact a completely separate organization from us.







Long Island Search and Rescue, is a 501(c)(3)not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving fire, rescue, emergency management, and law enforcement agencies in New York, the surrounding states and throughout the United States by special arrangement with the requesting agency. As a public service, we provide certified Search and Rescue teams and  highly trained and experienced search dog and handler teams to search, locate and assist with the rescue or recovery of lost, missing or incapacitated persons upon the request of any accredited agency. Our primary service areas are Suffolk and Nassau counties as well as New York State, although we may respond elsewhere if needed and requested.
