VOLUNTEERS MAKING A DIFFERENCE

The Kern County Sheriff’s Mounted Search and Rescue Unit consists of civilians who volunteer their own time, money and horses for search and rescue operations in close cooperation with the Kern County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies.

Our members participate in many opportunities to train to be ready to provide our service when needed.
