Deschutes County Search & Rescue Foundation


The mission of the Deschutes County Search and Rescue Foundation is to raise funds and promote public awareness in support of the Search and Rescue volunteer activities conducted by the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.


$25 - Now that winter has arrived, we will supply team members with hand and feet warmers as needed.

$50 - Helps maintain a supply of high calorie/high protein food for SAR team members when they are on a mission. This is a critical fuel needed to maintain energy levels on long missions in the wilderness.

$100 - Pays for the registration fees for SAR volunteers to attend the annual Northwest Search and Rescue Conference to stay abreast of the latest in search and rescue technologies and training curriculums.

$200 - Allows us to provide wilderness First Aid, CPR and AED training to all SAR volunteers where re-certification is required on a bi-annual basis.

$300 - Helps to supplement the cost of advanced instructor training in disciplines such as avalanche awareness, mountain rescue and white water rescue. Attendance at these programs often costs thousands of dollars. Having certified in-house instructors allows us to train individual team members to further enhance the qualifications and skills of our teams to meet the challenges of searches and rescues in the wilderness.
