Volunteers with the Madera County Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue team do all that and more in their struggle to provide life-saving services to those in need. Searches can be as grueling as they are time consuming. Sheriff’s volunteers come from all walks of life, but have one thing in common...compassion for their fellow man.


The following SAR Teams are utilized by the Madera County Sheriff’s Department: Dive Team, Technical Team, Foot Searchers, Posse, 4x4 Team, Canine and Overhead Team. Many members of Madera County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue Team are cross-trained, able to assist when and where they are needed.
