What is Search & Rescue?

When a hiker is lost in the woods, an elderly person walks away from their home, or a child is missing, search and rescue (SAR) teams respond to locate these individuals.

Marion County Search and Rescue Communications (SARCOM) is an all-volunteer organization that primarily supports SAR operations in Marion County, Oregon and surrounding areas. We also provide educational resources to the community and training to fellow SAR groups.


SARCOM is a non-profit organization, so we rely on community donations.
