Wrightwood / Phelan Search and Rescue:

Special Thanks to the Wrightwood Fire Safe Council

On Tuesday, July 19th 2011, the Wrightwood / Phelan Search and Rescue Team received a generous donation of $300 from the Wrightwood Fire Safe Council. This money will help the team purchase equipment for their advanced wilderness medical program. As a non-profit organization, donations like this are what allow the team to operate as a local emergency resource.


The Wrightwood/Phelan Search and Rescue Team, Unit #239 was established in 1991. The team members are exceptional men and women who volunteer their time to assist the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in its effort to locate and rescue individuals within the vast terrain of the county. The members of this team are volunteers with different backgrounds. We have postal employees, engineers, business owners, a variety of professionals and many tradesmen. All are non-paid citizen volunteers. Members may also become reserve deputies and function in special assignments. Again, the common bonds are their unselfishness and personal sacrifices and dedication. The emphasis in this type of volunteer organization is teamwork. This team is a partner in the Sheriff’s organization.
