SR3 RESCUE CONCEPTS
SR3 employs a group of highly trained experts in the fields of tactical medicine, search and rescue operations and law enforcement aviation. Our primary mission is to enhance the safety of first responders and those who serve the public. We believe there is no substitute for high quality training to reduce risk.
We are dedicated to providing the most qualified instructors with real life experience, who tailor our courses to the needs of the customer. Our training programs are designed to be customized for any agency or operation, regardless of size and mission.
SR3 is founded in memory of our friend, Dave VanBuskirk (call sign SR3).
On the evening of July 22, 2013, we lost a hero. Our good friend and co-worker Dave VanBuskirk fell during a helicopter rescue operation at Mt. Charleston while saving a man’s life. To say his death was a tragic loss to his family, friends, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the community would be an understatement. It is difficult to put into words what a remarkable human being he was. For anyone that never had the pleasure of knowing him, we have tried to do just that.
