Deschutes County: Dive Team

One of the most difficult responsibilities is held by Deschutes County's Search & Rescue Dive Team! The amount of training hours involved to be able to achieve the technical skills that are required for this team are too many to count. This team is charged with body recovery in area rivers and lakes. They play a critical role in searching for missing persons and support local law enforcement with the search for criminal evidence that might have been thrown into the water.

The challenges and dangers of operating underwater are many, but leave it to this team to take care of business. A special thank you to the sponsors that aid in keeping this team's equipment (which is their life) and their intense training in tip top condition.

Dive Team Mission Statement:

The SAR Dive Team mission is to provide assistance in locating, recovering and preserving evidence, and locating and recovering drowning victims through the deployment of properly trained and equipped divers in the safest manner possible while striving to raise public conscience concerning safety around water and ice.
