The deployment of specialized personnel, area-specific technology, and public awareness campaigns are among the efforts undertaken by the U.S. Border Patrol each year in order to prevent the unfortunate loss of life.
Specialized units will be on hand to include Border Patrol’s Border Search, Trauma and Rescue team (BORSTAR) and EMTs.
