This study aims to determine the effectiveness of the performance of the Padang Search and Rescue Office (Basarnas Padang) in conducting SAR operations. The research method in this research is qualitative research with descriptive methods. Data collected through interviews and documentation studies. This research was held at the Basarnas Padang and the Regional Disaster Management Agency in three regions, namely Padang City, Padang Pariaman Regency, and Pesisir Selatan Regency. The results showed that the effectiveness of Basarnas's performance in carrying out SAR operations was not running optimally. The objectives of the SAR operation have not been achieved as a whole. Human resources are still limited and do not fit the needs of the work area. Therefore, attention from the Government is needed to meet the need for human resources in the Basarnas Padang so that the SAR operation can run smoothly and achieve maximum results.
