Big Day of Giving 2022

Each year El Dorado Search & Rescue Council pays for trainings and purchases new equipment to help El Dorado County Sheriff's Search and Rescue field teams stay up to date, ready to save lives and provide the public with the most effective personnel and resources available.

The goal of the El Dorado Search & Rescue Council is to continue to make a difference in the lives of others. With the help of donations from supporters such as you, it will allow us to continue with our mission in helping the public.

We are a nonprofit organization that anyone can make a charitable contribution to. If you want to support search and rescue in El Dorado County, the El Dorado Search & Rescue Council will use your contributions to fund equipment, training, and public education for search and rescue.

Accessories for the new all-weather Utility Vehicle can assist a swift and comfortable response for stranded or injured hikers. Technical climbing gear, winter gear, and water gear need replacement per schedule.

El Dorado Search and Rescue is looking for volunteers in the field and in support positions to plan, manage, and support our incidents.
