Special Operations Response Team

The Tennessee State Parks SORT team is made up entirely of commissioned State Park Rangers and Managers. Each ranger is required to be an EMT-IV or higher in medical certification. The SORT team is responsible for working events that require additional security and law enforcement presence.  The SORT team has been used in the past for large events such as  Darryl Worley's Tennessee River Run and several of the larger trail rides at Natchez Trace State Park. The SORT team has trained with the FBI, TBI, and many local / county swat teams. Members of the team also train to work in all levels of the incident command system.
