WE COULD ALWAYS USE SOME EXTRA HANDS.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is always looking for new, dedicated volunteers to assist with Search & Rescue operations.

MOHAVE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE – SEARCH & RESCUE


mcsar-logo-trans2mcsar-logo-trans2Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue is an all-volunteer organization with more than 100 members covering all of Mohave
County, Arizona. Our mission is to assist the Sheriff in serving the community by carrying out search and rescue missions and other duties as requested by the Sheriff.

Under the direction of Sheriff Jim McCabe and multiple state SAR Coordinators, Mohave Search & Rescue serves the needs of over 200,000 residents and nearly 5 million visitors yearly. Search coordinators direct the activities of our volunteers from four locations in all aspects of SAR. The results have been notable, with the rescue of many citizens and in some cases, life saving.

VOLUNTEERS DEDICATED TO RESPOND IN TIMES OF EMERGENCY

Mohave County is the 5th largest size county in the United States, excluding Alaska. Bordered by the Colorado River to the West and Utah to the North, it has a diverse topography of high forested mountains, deep canyons, arid deserts, big lakes and the mighty Colorado River.

Temperature extremes can reach sub zero in the higher elevations to over 120F in the low lying desert. It has a rich history of mining that continues to this day. Numerous open mine shafts still dot the landscape.

This difficult, dangerous and challenging environment tests the abilities of all Search and Rescue members and provides many rewarding experiences. As such, Mohave County Search & Rescue has 4 individual responding units based out of Kingman, Bullhead City, Havasu and the Arizona Strip region.

The county consists of two sections divided by the Grand Canyon, with no direct land communication between them. The northern section, smaller and less populated, forms the western part of the Arizona Strip, bordering Utah and Nevada. The larger southern section, borders Nevada and California across the Colorado River, which forms most of the county’s western boundary. The southern section includes Kingman, the county seat, and other cities, as well as part of the Mojave Desert.

Mohave County contains parts of Grand Canyon National Park and Lake Mead National Recreation Area and all of the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument. The Kaibab, Fort Mojave and Hualapai Indian Reservations also lie within the county.
