Enjoy Nature - Plan your Hike by filling out the Sheriff's Department's Hiking Plan Sheet.
Hiking/Camping is a fun way to get family and friends together to enjoy the outdoors, and to get some physical activity. However, you should always be prepared for the unexpected. You should tell family and friends what your plans are and provide a list of who will be going with you.
That's why the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department would like to remind the residents of Los Angeles County that having a hiking/camping plan is crucial to survival in case of an emergency.
Before you leave, please fill out Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue - Hiking Plan sheet and provide to a loved one to hold onto just in case something happens to a member of your hiking/camping expedition. You can download the form by visiting http://file.lacounty.gov/lasd/cms1_163961.pdf
If you would like more information on how to prepare for your hiking / camping trip, please visit the Center for Disease Control's camping website

Upcoming team community events
SDMRT is active in our local community year-round with education and information presentations at community fairs, schools and other public events. To request a demonstration or presentation please Contact Us.
For over half a century the San Dimas Mountain Rescue Team has come to the aid of lost, overdue or injured hikers, victims of cars over the side of the mountain, searched for downed aircraft and performed fire and flood evacuations in our local mountains. We are called upon to conduct information seminars and participate in community events on a regular basis.
Although funded by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for vehicles and life safety equipment, the team and the individual members purchase a significant amount of equipment and gear that is necessary to carry out our mission of saving lives.
To an all-volunteer organization like our Team, donations are important to providing the team with access to the latest and best-suited equipment and training available.
