SCVSAR also fields several specialty teams, members for these teams are drawn from the unit structure, that work in the areas of:

  • 4x4 Rescue
  • Air Operations
  • K-9 Search and Rescue (SAR)
  • Mountain Rescue
  • Swift Water Rescue
  • Tracking


Due to the nature of our volunteer work we do have requirements that must be met before we can consider you as a member and have you participate in training and/or missions that take place out "in the field". Follow the link to the SCVSAR site to learn more about the Membership Requirements.
