Kern Valley Search and Rescue (KVSAR) is the original Search and Rescue team in Kern County. The team serves the Kern River Valley and surrounding wilderness. KVSAR is located in the most diverse terrain in Kern County that includes many miles of the Kern River, snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, edges of the Mojave Desert, and Lake Isabella. KVSAR not only provides Search and Rescue services but also plays a vital role in support operations for the Kern County Sheriff's Office. Due to the teams level of expertise and experience, they are often called to assist outlying Search and Rescue units all over Kern County and California. KVSAR member's pride themselves in being leaders in safety education of visitors, students, and residents of the Kern River Valley.
