Tehama Search & Rescue

“That Others May Live”

Prior to retiring, my husband was the lieutenant who oversaw the SAR program. Since he retired, he joined SAR as a volunteer. That’s him on the boat.

If you aren’t familiar with Search & Rescue (SAR) – they are an all volunteer sheriffs team that train regular to “search” and “rescue” people who have lost or injured in the various terrains of our large county.

They are ready to get in the river or lakes, they have divers, they have gear for snow, they have dogs and 4wd to get into our remote areas, they are trained to repel down mountainsides and treat severe injuries in the field.

As you can imagine, to do all this right, the team puts a lot of time into training.

They most often get called out late at night – and sometimes during holidays.

They hold regular fundraisers to purchase equipment.

These are some of the most under appreciated people in our county. They won’t ever boast about what they do – so I’m boasting for them.

Thank you to all of the SAR volunteers. We appreciate more than you know.

  1. They are a valuable and fantastic group! Thanks for sharing. I took courses from them in 1982-83. Repelling was fun!
