Disaster SAR Resource

There are many different types of disasters that could impact Contra Costa County or surrounding areas. They include earthquakes, fires, mudslides, floods, evacuations and other disasters where local fire, police or emergency agencies require assistance. SAR TEAMS HAVE A ROLE IN DISASTER RESPONSE to these incidents.

The Contra Costa SAR team is trained and ready to respond to impacted areas and provide search & rescue related services in a post-disaster environment.  This may include conducting house-to-house searches, providing basic first aid, assisting with neighborhood evacuations, carrying out light rescue operations and providing other assistance to local agencies as needed.
