Yavapai County Arizona entices residents and visitors alike with some of the most beautiful and diversified terrain found anywhere in this country. From wide-open deserts with rocky mountain tops to thick forests with lakes and running streams, there is something for everyone to explore and enjoy. Our mountains and valleys offer literally hundreds of miles of rarely traveled roads and thousands of trails and footpaths through inaccessible valleys.

Unfortunately for some, exploring these areas can sometimes lead to terrifying hours, or even days waiting to be rescued after a problem with their vehicle or after becoming lost or injured while hiking or biking. With any such emergency, it is important that these people are located and rescued quickly.

In addition to state and county resources, the Yavapai County Sheriff has several volunteer organizations at his disposal to contribute to search efforts. Whether by foot, horseback, four-wheel-drive vehicle or by air, these dedicated individuals give thousands of man-hours annually to make our part of Arizona a safer place for everyone.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Air Group (YCSAG)Organized in 1996, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Air Group, (YCSAG), allows flying members of the local community to exercise their love of flying while making a significant contribution to their community.

Based at the Ernest A. Love Field (PRC) in Prescott, Arizona the YCSAG members meet regularly for meetings and training sessions in preparation for aerial search and rescue missions. Operating privately owned aircraft, members regularly contribute to successful rescue efforts. Many of which were reduced to hours of searching instead of several days which was typical before the formation of the group.
