Started in 1976, the Medical Team (Rescue 60) is comprised of Paramedics, Nurses and Doctors who volunteer their time 365 days a year. The unit provides Advanced Life Support (ALS) capabilities to supplement our Aviation Unit fleet of rescue helicopters. The team currently has a membership of twenty five medical professionals. Upon acceptance to the team, members undergo training in helicopter operations, hover loading, hoisting, patient packaging, and night vision google operation. The SAR medical team supplements the full time Sheriff / Fire helicopter crew chiefs and provide a vital role in helping save lives of those who suffer traumatic injuries in remote areas of the county.
