For over 50 years, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Search & Rescue teams have been counted on to locate and assist lost, hurt, or trapped people in desert, mountainous, hillside and urban settings. The Antelope Valley team (13 volunteers and 10 reserve individuals) covers Lancaster and Palmdale, and totals 1800 square miles of terrain.

“Last year, we responded to over 100 incidents,” said Les J. White, Antelope Valley Search & Rescue Assistant Coordinator. “We even rescued individuals trapped in several avalanches in the ski areas.”

Dr. Gary Boghossian of AVORS Medical Group recently joined Search & Rescue as their Medical Officer and has gone through ATV 4-wheel drive training and rappelling (or rope) training. He has already become an asset to the team.

“It’s great having a doctor on the team, especially a wound expert and former army medic,” added White. “I know how busy Dr. Boghossian is with his patients at AVORS, and we appreciate the time he gives to the community.”

The Antelope Valley Search & Rescue is looking for volunteers and donations. Please contact Lester J. White in Lancaster at to assist their worthy effort.
