Texas Task Force 2 (TX-TF2) serves as one of two state Urban Search & Rescue (US&R) teams in the State of Texas. Our mission is the following:

“To provide a coordinated effort including the necessary personnel and equipment to locate, extricate, rescue, and provide immediate medical treatment to victims trapped as a result of a natural or man-made disaster. We will provide assistance to first responders at their incidents when their capabilities are exceeded. To support this mission, US&R members shall develop and deploy effective rescue technologies that follow Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guidelines. TX-TF2 will rapidly mobilize to assist municipal, state, and federal agencies when called upon.”
