The Mid-Missouri Search and Rescue Dive Team is an all volunteer team serving all Counties in the St. Louis, Missouri area and is registered as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, public service corporation.
The Team was established after the floods of 1993 in St. Louis, Missouri, where many of the members were involved in securing the Propane Tank Farm located in South St. Louis spending twelve days, twenty-four hours a day, on the scene. See "Team Calls" for further details. They gathered after the event and decided that there was a need for a team that was fully trained in all aspects of SCUBA Diving.
The Team consists of members ranging from : Volunteer and Full-time Fire Fighters, EMTs, Law enforcement personnel from several city and county agencies, and other people from all walks of life.
The Team had its first meeting in September of 1993, with twenty charter members, and covered three counties. Those counties were; Franklin Co., Gasconade Co., and Jefferson Co. Today the team has expanded to twenty five members serving ten counties. Some of the counties have joined with another non-profit team in the northern part of Missouri.
The team they have joined is a well recognized Search and Rescue Dog Team and with these added personnel of divers, help round that team out. We are still working with those counties who moved to the other non-profit team of Central States Search and Rescue. With all of the dive teams having the same training throughout the state, allows us to work together under the same guidelines and techniques.
The Team is composed of three Board of Directors, Team Commander, Vice-Commander, Secretary, Treasurer, Team Safety Officer, two Training Officers, seven Zone Commanders, seven Safety Officers, Divers, and Line Tenders.
The Team operates on Standard Operating Guidelines (S.O.G.s) and the Incident Command System (I.C.S.)
The Team is strict on training through-out the year, requiring annual skills reviews and for each diver to maintain at least twenty hours of bottom time per year. Ninety-five percent of the members are Advanced Scuba Diver Certified or higher and twenty percent are Cavern, Night, Deep and Rescue Certified.
Our mission is to train with and provide assistance to other Dive Teams, Fire Departments and Law Enforcement Agencies (Local, State, and Federal) in search and rescue or recovery situations as called upon.
We achieved our goal which was to have a team of the highest qualified divers in the state. All our team members are dedicated to becoming the best, not only in Missouri, but through-out the country.
Our divers are on call twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. In 1997 we responded to thirty-five calls ranging from recovery of drowning victims, vehicle recoveries and evidence recovery.
The Team worked with TV Station Channel 30 and The Missouri State Water Patrol on a Public Safety Message.
We also provided training to Fire Departments , EMTs and Police Officers in Search and Recovery Techniques, Water Rescue,Ice Rescue (Surface Support) and Watercraft Operation and to the Public in Water Safety.
The Team is divided into five zones:
