NEWBURGH RESCUE SAR 

 

WELCOME!!  Please be patient as we build this site


Started in 1973 by Vincent H (Mickey) Favoino as Newburgh Rescue Supply, the business has grown and expanded into all areas of Technical Rescue.  When it was sold in 2012, the new owner had no interest or knowledge of SAR, so Mickey opted to not leave this small but important group unnserved and, to that end, has established NEWBURGH RESCUE SAR to provide for the needs of the SAR community.   Active in the local community, Mickey has more than 40 years of service in a local volunteer Fire Department as a firefighter/fire officer and nearly 20 years in local volunteer ambulance corps.  Retired after 24 years as a Combat Medic in the Army National Guard, Mickey was recruited by the New York Guard specifically to help develop and teach their Search and Rescue Teams.  Folowing 9/11, he and two friends saw a need in lower New York State and formed New York Search and Rescue, an all volunteer team covering the 7 lower counties of New York.  As an Eagle Scout, Mickey developed an interest in Technical Rescue which was enhanced by his association with the 10th Mountain Division during his years in the Army; then utilized for years as a NYS Fire Instructor for Technical Rescue, Water and Ice rescue.  He has taught many aspects of rescue for over 40 years, including Search and Rescue and a large variety of related subjets and has been a life member of NASAR (National Association for Search and Rescue) since the mid 1970's.  ALL your Technical Rescue needs can be filled through NEWBURGH RESCUE SAR , including training.  We have a brick and mortar shop at 56 Fifth Avenue, Newburgh, NY but will also travel to a variety of SAR events if invited.  The picture above comes from one of those sites.  We also have  a significant selection of K-9 products available, augmented by all American Made high end treats, high quality toys etc., through our daughter's shop, PAWS OF DISTINCTION.  Eventually there will be a link to that site.
