About

What is Polaris?
Polaris is a newly formed non-profit. We are a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization.

What does Polaris mean?
Polaris is the North star, it is the light that guides one home and gives one hope and stability in the darkness. It was on this idea of the light of hope in one’s darkest moments that we chose to name this rescue team after Polaris. “Praelucente” is Latin for “guiding light”.

What does Polaris do?
1) Create local rescue teams around the world in disaster-prone countries. 2) Educate the public on disaster preparedness and first aid.

Polaris Mission Statement
