ADVENTURERS • EXPLORERS • RESCUERS • KNIFE GUYS
The RAT/ESEE team averages over 100 days in the field each year. Whether it's hiking a mountain peak in Colorado, canyoneering in the red rock country of Utah, teaching survival in the Amazon jungle of Peru, instructing technical rescue courses in austere environments, or hiking and caving in the remote areas of the Southeast, the team is always designing, prototyping and testing new gear and techniques for the extremes of the modern day adventurist.
The ESEE team are also members of a non-profit SAR organization named after their training company. RAT-SAR is a private, non-profit 501(c)3, non-government, specialized search, rescue, and training organization incorporated under the laws of the State of Alabama. RAT-SAR is founded on the principle of self-sufficient, mobile teams trained to operate in remote wilderness, high angle, natural subterranean, flood / swiftwater, and other austere environments. RAT-SAR provides free training to verified search and rescue members, as well as volunteering in the Southeast on search and rescue missions.
