Our 501(c)3 team is made up entirely of volunteers volunteering their own time and primarily their own equipment. We rely exclusively on donations to fund team equipment and higher level rescue and medical training.

Since its inception in 1989, the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team has responded to missing person incidents involving individuals and groups from urban to wilderness environments. The team has also devoted hundreds of hours to instructing our school children and local Scout Troops about safety in the outdoors. Your support has played a key role with enhancing our equipment and training curriculum. This is only possible because of the generous contribution.
