Douglas County Search and Rescue

If you enjoy helping others, have a love for the outdoors, and have the time to volunteer, then consider joining Douglas County Search and Rescue. The rewards of volunteering in Colorado are enormous.

Douglas County Search & Rescue (DCSAR) is a non-profit, all-volunteer team dedicated to providing search, rescue, emergency response, and outdoor safety education to the residents of Douglas County. The team also responds to requests for assistance from other search and rescue teams in Colorado and around the U.S. Calls range from searches for missing persons in residential areas to rescues of those injured in the wilderness.

DCSAR operates under the authority of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

DCSAR recruits new members each July. Training begins in September and runs through May. Candidates join rescuers on all regularly scheduled trainings, plus have an additional orientation training each month. Most new members become “fielded” by Memorial Day.
