Deschutes County Search and Rescue of Bend, Oregon

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s SAR mission is to provide professional, high-quality search and rescue assistance to citizens of Deschutes County, visitors who recreate locally, and mutual aid to other counties as requested. The ability to save a life or effect a successful rescue is often dependent upon how quickly the person can be found or reached.

Deschutes County Search & Rescue includes general volunteers as well as highly trained volunteers who serve on specialty teams. The SAR Teams include swift water rescue, mountain (MRU) and cave rescue, medical evacuation and K-9 (canine) search. Additional teams include Incident Management Team (IMT), logistics team, Air Operations, ATV team, snowmobile winter search team, tracking team, ground team, ski team, dive team and a horse team. All members complete a Wilderness First Responder training. Other volunteers are EMT certified. Medical team members operate under the direction of a St. Charles Medical Center-Bend Physician Adviser. 

Search & Rescue is a highly demanding volunteer service in terms of both training and missions. Before new members begin training they must undergo a background test, drug test, complete a physical fitness hiking test and have a personal interview with the Sheriff’s Office and the SAR staff. Then they must complete two online courses, ICS 100 and ICS 700, prior to the first day of class in the training Academy which includes approximately 20 days of class time. Members are required to log a minimum of 100 hours annually.
