Operation Rescue Ready

Growing with Our Community

Toward Our First $200,000

Our campaign has only just begun and we are already seeing amazing support from the community. To kick us off, the Emil & Leonora Stiefvater Senior Endowment has pledged a dollar-for-dollar match up to $100,000 for donations to the building campaign through December 31st, 2023. Visit our donation page help us make a giant first step to our fundraising goal!

A Growing Team

Over the past 20 years, our team has grown to support the expanding population of Butte County. Five years ago, our team had just three response vehicles. Now that number has more than tripled. Our current headquarters offers just 3000 sq ft of equipment storage and the team has outgrown its current location.

We are in need of a parcel of land with room to construct a new HQ capable of housing all of our equipment while keeping response times low.

Members of the Community

Our team has always relied on the generosity and support of our local community. We have been through so much together – devastating wildfires, spillway failures, and winters that have brought entire towns to a halt. You have supported us through it all and enabled us to continue to focus on what matters most: saving lives.

We envision our new facility as a hub for Search and Rescue training and equipment storage as well as a location for community disaster preparedness education.

How You Can Help

We look forward to discussing any ideas or potential property, service, or monetary donations with you! Please consider donating to Butte County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Operation Rescue Ready and help us continue to serve Butte County today tomorrow, and for many years to come.
