Major Projects: Robeson County Search & Rescue Team
Chartered March 1986 – A Non-Profit Organization
Our mission is to provide the best land search capabilities possible for the citizens of not only Robeson County also any person or persons needing land search assistance. Our goal is to provide a quick response which lessens our search area efforts. This also provides for a successful and efficient search technique. We search for clues, not the subject! The best way to find someone is to find where they are not. Clues will lead to the lost subject.
Contact the Sheriff’s office just as soon as you determine someone is missing. 24 hours is not the law and is too long for a person to be missing before authorities are notified. The search and Rescue Team consists of 28 members.
Special Needs Registry
The Robeson County Special Needs Registry is a voluntary registry of individuals who would require assistance in the event of an emergency. This assistance could be as simple as advising a person of a situation in the vicinity of their residence to those who need evacuation assistance in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. This registry alerts emergency responders as to a resident’s address and gives them the vital information they need to better meet the resident’s needs. It is important that emergency personnel know where to find you, and how best to meet some of your requirements during a disaster requiring evacuation.
Participation in the registry is voluntary and all information is strictly confidential, used only for emergency purposes.
Eligible individuals need only to complete the attached forms and return it to the Robeson County Department of Social Services, Service Program Administrator, ATTN: Special Needs Registry, 120 Glen Cowan Road, Lumberton, NC 28360. Forms are available HERE, stopping by our office at Robeson County Emergency Management, 38 Legend Drive, Lumberton, NC 28358 during business hours, or calling our office at (910) 671-3150.
