So That Others May Live

Our Mission

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!

Call us 530-621-5895 or email eldoradooes@edso.org for more information.
