Search and Rescue (SAR)

The Klamath County Search and Rescue Teams (North County and South County) are a combination of Dive Rescue, Small Boat Rescue, ground and mounted Search and Rescue, and K9 Rescue. Each works harmoniously with the others to protect life and property. If it’s a lost hiker or camper, skier or boater, downed aircraft, wildfire, injured person in the back-country, or any combination thereof, Search and Rescue works as a team to rescue those who require assistance. The men and women of the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office are here to help.
