Citizens of Josephine County,Thank you for your past support of Josephine County Search and Rescue (SAR). We operate under an unfunded State mandate. Your donations pay for our rescue equipment, maintenance for the equipment, required training and certifications, along with many other needs. Every cent goes directly to supporting SAR operations. We are all volunteers and no donation monies are used to pay any wages.
We need your donations for SAR to work. We cannot do this without your support.
You will see us out helping in the community with events such as boat races, the Boatnik Parade, and the Josephine County Fair. We support the Sheriff's Office by providing crime scene security and evidence searches. Our Volunteers participate in safety fairs to provide outdoor survival education.
Your Friends and Neighbors who are Josephine County Search and Rescue
Volunteers, Thank You.
