Bend Paddle Trail Alliance
Deschutes County is a great attraction for outdoor enthusiasts, a 3,000 square mile natural playground. Unfortunately, each year approximately 100 people are reported as missing or injured each year. Search and Rescue (SAR) professional volunteers are on call seven days a week, every day of the year to respond to such emergencies. SAR’s mission is to provide professional, high-quality search and rescue assistance to citizens of Deschutes County, visitors who recreate locally, and mutual aid to other counties as requested.
