ANTIGUA & BARBUDA SEARCH AND RESCUE

VOLUNTEER RESCUE SERVICE

Antigua & Barbuda Search and Rescue, or ABSAR, is a non-profit organization based at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina, Falmouth Harbour, Antigua.

ABSAR's goal is to preserve life. We are ready to respond 24X7 by sea, air, and land to search, rescue and medical emergencies within our reach. We liaise with the Antigua Coast Guard, Caribbean Helicopters and other agencies in the area to facilitate the best response to your emergency. We are also the primary safety, rescue and medical agency for the Antigua Race Week and the Antigua Classic Regatta.

In order to provide this service, we depend fully on donations, mainly from the private sector. The decision to initiate or continue a search should not be based solely on the availability of funds, which has been the case in so many searches in the past. Through donations and fund raising events we therefore ensure that this is not the case.

Any contribution to our organization is much appreciated.

For more information on how you can contribute, please visit on our website.
