a team since 1966
for the safety of our community
Mesa County Search and Rescue (MCSAR) was organized in 1966 with a few Sheriff Posse members and citizen band radio operators. It is now a non-profit organization with several individual clubs or groups. Excluding the officials of the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), SAR is strictly a volunteer organization.
a team EFFORT
it takes the community to protect the community
SAR consists of a variety of specialized teams to meet the needs of various searches and rescue operations. These teams designate members to serve on the SAR board. Each team trains in their specialty on their own time providing their own equipment. They also coordinate services with other teams and the Sheriff’s Office personnel. Each team also provides support personnel for incident command as needed.
