Planning a hike?

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department suggests that you fill out a hiking plan before you go hiking.




Each year for the past ten years the Ventura County Search and Rescue - Upper Ojai Team has held its annual fundraiser at Boccali’s. The fundraiser includes an all you can eat dinner and live music, raffle items and a silent auction. Each year we also raffle off a good mountain bike.


Since we receive little public funds we depend on the support of the community for search and rescue equipment, medical supplies and other team supplies like uniforms and foul weather gear.


During the 2009-2010 fiscal year we were able to purchase, and outfit our new command post. We were able to purchase a new Dell Latitude Laptop, HP Plotter (for printing topo maps), a quiet Honda generator as well as build and install the countertops and fixtures that make a command post functional. We also purchased three 1,000 lumen LED flashlights for searches. These lights produce an incredible amount of light. We also purchase some new headlamps for everyone on the team. These Black Diamond 3W headlamps again produce an incredible amount of light and don't use much battery.


We sincerely thank everyone for their generous and continued support. As a reminder all of your donations are tax deductible and our 501(c)3 number is 77-0295203. If you have any questions on how you can help, please e-mail us at:
