As members of the El Dorado County Sheriff Search & Rescue, our mission is to save lives and reduce human suffering. We will give the public the most effective and professional personnel and resources response to search, rescue, and support the Sheriff's Department during disaster emergencies.
Join Our Team
It's challenging. It's a second family. It's rewarding!
Being a member of a SAR team is demanding. As a member of our search and rescue team you will be expected to attend monthly training and at least 50% of call-outs.
If you are looking for the most rewarding of volunteer opportunities we would love to have you. It is not easy but the rewards are amazing!
We are operationally divided into West Slope and South Lake Tahoe Divisions:

Support El Dorado Search and Rescue
It takes lots of volunteer hours to maintain our unit. It also takes funding!
Maintaining a volunteer search and rescue team is cheap on salaries, but it still requires funding.
Technical training, equipment and expendables is considerable for a Search and Rescue. Over 50% of our budget comes in the form of donations.
