Currently Jackson County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team stands at 135 volunteers. We provide both urban and wilderness rescue response and disaster relief activities. The primary units are designed to be responsible for “first response” to their geographic area, but are not limited to that area. They train in all aspects of search and rescue, including search techniques, land navigation, tracking, rescue and recovery, and first aid. Many members of the team are emergency medical technicians, and all team members are trained to a minimum level of first responder.
