The Deschutes County Search and Rescue organization operates under the direction of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and is comprised of approximately 120 volunteers who donate their time and energy to participate in missions to rescue those lost or injured in the wilderness. Our volunteers participate in teams with expertise in mountain rescue, swiftwater rescue, backcountry skiing, snowmobile, ATV, tracking, K9 searches and emergency medical treatment.
