About us

The Montrose Search and Rescue Team is one of eight non-profit, volunteer rescues teams affiliated with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The men and women of the team are trained and ready to respond to virtually any wilderness emergency 24-hours a day. Averaging between 65-100 calls per year, makes Montrose Search and Rescue one of the busiest teams in the county. The team is always on call and is notified via pagers and cell phones when the need arises. While the team performs 95% of its duties in 500 square miles of the Los Angeles District of the Angeles National Forest, the team also travels throughout California and other requested locations to aid in a rescue or recovery
