Why We Do It


The members of Cherokee County’s Search and Rescue team all share one common interest: the desire to serve our community. Originally the motto of the US Air Force Pararescuemen, many in the SAR community have adopted the following as it exemplifies that common interest:

These things we do, that others may live. 

Search and Rescue is not easy for our volunteers, but we are dedicated to our cause. We donate not only our time, but our gear, resources, sweat and sometimes blood in order to help others in our community and our team.
