The Search and Rescue Teams function as the Sheriff’s Department’s official emergency response unit that provides services to those citizens who become stranded, lost, or injured in the mountainous areas of Los Angeles County.

Each team member is selected for his/her physical capabilities, maturity, and willingness to respond at a moment’s notice in emergency search and rescue situations. Team members must hold a current Emergency Medical Technician license and usually must live within fifteen or twenty minutes response time of the station where they serve. In addition to Academy Training, Search and Rescue Team members undergo extensive mountaineering training.
