The Team


The Santa Clarita Search and Rescue Team is made up of highly trained individuals from all walks of life. Their backgrounds range from school teachers to contractors, from film directors to rocket scientists. Despite demanding day jobs, these team members form a cohesive unit which can respond to an emergency at a moment?s notice.

The Santa Clarita Search and Rescue Team first came into being on the night of January 27, 1957 after the rescue of a boy in rugged Loop Canyon, located in the foothills north of Sylmar. Programs to acquire training and equipment for the group's efficient operation were set up with special emphasis on First Aid and mountain climbing techniques.

Today, that original group has been transformed into a highly trained, well disciplined Search and Rescue team. Headquartered at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station, the team is composed of Reserve Deputies and High Risk Civilian Volunteers. The team is ?on call? and ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The team is one of eight similar Search and Rescue teams in Los Angeles County.
