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.
