Lane County Search and Rescue of Springfield, Oregon

The Lane County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue program (SAR) responds to lost, injured or missing people that are in need of rescue and can include the recovery of deceased subjects as well as aircraft related beacon searches. They also support logistics, assist with disaster response, including recovery from natural or technological danger and they support criminal investigations with evidence searches. Lane County SAR teams respond on a 24 hour basis as mandated by Oregon State Law.

They start them out young in Lane County with the SAR Explorer Post 178 which consists of young men and women as young as 14 years of age up to 20 years old. The Explorers can be called upon at any time, day or night, to search for a missing person or to serve in base camp operations support. They also support the Water Search and Rescue Unit and the Eugene Mountain Rescue teams.

This search & rescue response unit is a group of highly trained individuals. Any new member must complete the Search and Rescue 101 training which is a 135 hour class. The young Explorers have regular meetings and outings throughout the year to provide opportunity for the essential training required in preparation for participation in search missions. One of their stated training objectives is to provide appropriate training for volunteers serving as man trackers, divers, search managers and for team members performing high angle rescue, ground search, beacon search, water rescue and boat operations, search dog handling and missions and 4-wheel drive search & rescue.

Lane County Search and Rescue has its mix of specialty rescue teams. Ground Search and Rescue (GSAR) takes in members 19 years or older and they undergo an initial 100 plus hours of ground SAR rescue training and continue to refine their skills yearly with 30 hours of annual, ongoing training.

For search & rescue access in vehicle accessible off-road areas, they have the Special Vehicle Group. These are volunteers who are certified in First Aid and CPR and have experience in wilderness survival as well as off-road driving and recovery. They must also own an off-road equipped vehicle. This specially trained team supports the Sheriff’s Office during snow and ice conditions with skills to travel on primitive “double track” roads. With their vehicle winches, VHF radio communication capabilities and their survival gear, they are highly efficient in perimeter containment and road searches.

Lane County also has a radio communications specialty team. The Lane County Amateur Radio Operators are comprised of volunteer FCC licensed amateur radio operators who provide alternative communications in support of search & rescue missions encompassing major emergencies and disasters.

For water rescue the Lane County Water Search and Rescue Unit is a specially trained group who assists the Sheriff’s Office with water rescue recoveries, evidence searches, vehicle recoveries and surface rescues. Divers supply their own SCUBA equipment. The team consists of advanced open water certified divers, swift water rescue technicians, power boat operators, drift boat operators and raft operators as well as shore support personnel.

Animals and their handlers provide SAR support as well. Lane County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse consists of volunteers with equestrian skills in rural and wilderness areas. Participating members are required to have their own horse, tack and transportation. The Lane County Search Dog Team provides assistance with trained search dogs. Team members must have their own equipment as well as dogs they have trained themselves. The rigorous training program takes approximately two to three years to complete.   

Another specialty SAR team that works with Lane County Search & Rescue is Eugene Mountain Rescue (EMR). It is a non-profit volunteer organization whose specialty is high angle rescue on rock and cliffs, rescue maneuvers in the snow and mountains and wilderness searches on steep terrain.
