General Photo Gallery
Here in our General Photo Gallery you'll find random and often candid pictures of El Dorado County Sheriff's Search and Rescue in action. Most of the photos are from training sessions, including SAREX (annual northern California Search And Rescue EXercise sponsored by Cal-EMA), the California Emergency Management Agency. These will give you a good idea of what is involved in our work.
