About Malibu Search & Rescue

Founded in 1977, the Malibu Search & Rescue Team is an all volunteer organization comprised of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Reserve Deputy Sheriffs, a select few Civilian Volunteer Specialists and Incident Support Personnel. Team members volunteer their time and efforts to help others and the team does not charge for rescues. The Team is a unit of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and is also a member of the prestigious California region of the Mountain Rescue Association.
JURISDICTION - 187 square miles of the Santa Monica Mountains from the Los Angeles/Ventura County line to Pacific Palisades, the east face of the Santa Susana Mountains and the contract cities of Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Malibu, Calabasas and Hidden Hills. We can also be sent anywhere in Los Angeles County to assist other LASD teams. We also respond anywhere in the state or country if requested to do so through the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA). 

Malibu Mountain Rescue Team, Inc. is the team’s non-profit 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation. Donations to the team help purchase critical rescue equipment. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department provides the team with our rescue vehicles, but it does not provide all of the rescue gear required. Rescue operations conducted by the Malibu Search and Rescue Team are under the guidance of the Sheriff of Los Angeles County.
