Who we are
The Mt Hood SAR Council is comprised of nine Oregon County Sheriff offfices, volunteer rescue teams and other collaborators that together, comprise region two of the Oregon State Sheriffs Association. By Oregon law, each county Sheriff is responsible for SAR activities within their respective jurisdictions.
What we do
The Mt Hood SAR Council strives to analyze the missions we respond to each month in order to capture and develop best practices we can utilize to make future missions more efficient, safe and successful.
We also strive to provide training, medical insurance and critical communal equipment in order to provide the best possible response to search and rescue missions in our region and beyond.
