Went there in 1980. 😎

#ThrowbackThursday #LASD The Search and Rescue teams function as the Sheriff’s Department’s official emergency response unit. The unit provides services to those citizens who become stranded, lost, or injured in the mountainous areas of Los Angeles County. 
 
There are eight individual teams: Altadena Mountain Rescue Team, Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team, Antelope Valley Search and Rescue, Malibu Search and Rescue Team, Santa Clarita Valley Search and Rescue Team, Montrose Search and Rescue, San Dimas Mountain Rescue Team and Avalon Search and Rescue Team. 
 
Most of the team members are Los Angeles County Sheriff Reserve Deputies, while others are dedicated volunteers from the local communities to assist in search and rescue operations. All teams are under the direction of the local Sheriff’s Stations. 
 
Because team members would go into steep and treacherous terrain, possibly at night or in the rain, it is imperative that all members are well trained. In addition to academy training, Search and Rescue Team members undergo extensive mountaineering training. Also, they must hold a current Emergency Medical Technician license and usually must live within a fifteen or twenty minute response time of the station where they serve.  
 
Each team member is selected for his or her physical capabilities, maturity, and willingness to respond at a moment’s notice in emergency search and rescue situations. The men and women of the team are highly trained in technical rope rescue, swift water, snow and ice operations search theory and tracking. 
 
As a part of the state of California mutual aid system, the teams also provides support search and rescue efforts throughout California and the United States. 
 
They are ready to respond to emergency 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, to “anywhere in the wilderness that someone needs help”!

Not many there. During the week families that work have many duties.

You guys should be going after people like Chelsea Handler for public safety reasons. She is all over television saying she needed therapy just to talk to conservatives. That shows a sociopathic tendacy and she should be considered a threat to the general public until she is evaluated. You know its true and the evidence is all over the airwaves. If she commits any violence that will be on the police and others who just laughed as she admitted she is a sociapath that has means to buy weapons or other methods of murder/violence. If she was an average citizen you'd 5150 her in an instant.
