1. What is the Davis County Sheriff's Search & Rescue and who are the volunteers
The Davis County Sheriff's Search & Rescue (DCSAR) is an all-volunteer organization that works under the direction of the Davis County Sheriff's Office. The DCSAR is on call 24 hours/day, 365 days/year, and responds to over 800 square miles in Davis County, Utah. DCSAR also responds to call for assistance from other counties and agencies abroad.
Search and rescue volunteers are selected from the community-based on their expertise and special talents -- but the primary requirement for membership is a true desire to help others. The group includes mountaineering specialists, rock climbers, cavers, scuba divers, tracking specialist, and swift water rescue technicians. Our members come from all walks of life- some come to us with experience, some without. Those without prior rescue experience go through a rigorous training program to become full members of the organization.
