The Arkansas Search and Rescue Association Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Arkansas Search and Rescue Association State Conference in June this year due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking into the possibility of trying to sponsor some smaller events this fall, depending on how the current situation evolves over the next few months. We will update everyone as new information becomes available.

We want to say a sincere thank you to all those who joined us to assist the Fayetteville Police Department with search efforts at Lake Fayetteville on Saturday. There were 12 agencies with over 80 personnel involved.

Our local partners included:
Washington County SAR, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Nob Hill Fire Department, Fayetteville Fire Department, Benton County SAR, Arkansas Game and Fish and the Springdale Police Department. Also, we’d like to thank those SAR partners like Virtual Search Planner and Air Force Rescue Coordination Center from outside NWA who provided additional council and search planning assistance.

We’re grateful to have such supportive agencies who are so willing to help when requested.

Is Earth's Magnetic Field About To Flip? A reversal would upend navigation and communication systems around the globe.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2019/02/05/earths-magnetic-north-pole-has-officially-moved/?fbclid=IwAR3FaiEv51_1a9A0xCwVqFtF9kYg_6-A08_4xTB3N4Sfbg9uyz_Jq02U_3A#524fca976862

Earth's magnetic north pole has drifted so fast that authorities have had to officially redefine the location of the magnetic north pole. The extreme wandering of the north pole caused increasing concerns over navigation, especially in high latitudes.

Mid-West Region! Are you heartsick with all your seminars having been cancelled? Well, hope is on the horizon! The nation will soon be opening up once again, and Seminar Season is just around the corner. Mid-Missouri Search Dogs (Canine Search & Rescue Assoc.-St. Louis) had so much fun hosting visual tracker Fernando Moreira in February, that we're bringing him back early summer for TWO courses in late May and early June! Fernando teaches the art of visual tracking, a useful skill for police, fire, and search & rescue personnel. See pics for seminar and registration details.
