THE GROUND TEAM WELCOMES THE NEW PMs for 2021!

The Ground Team was busy training the new PMs every Thursday and Saturday (with a week off for Spring Break) since February 8th! This time, the trainings were focused on standards for the NASAR SAR TECH II Test, which will be required for all active members soon. All 12 PMs successfully completed their overnighter on April 9th-10th.

GREAT JOB PMs!!!

 

The new uav team!

Thanks to the absolutely outstanding support of our community we were able to raise a large number of dedicated funds for a state of the art drone to use for search and rescue operations! This has led to the creation of a whole new operations team to ensure maximum effectiveness of this advanced new asset! Stay tuned for more information in the future!

A SKY HIGH THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DONATED TOWARDS THIS EFFORT!!

The Mesa County Search and Rescue Ground Team is a highly trained nonprofit professional rescue organization comprised of over 40 skilled volunteers. On average, we receive anywhere from 55 to 60 search and rescue missions a year in various locations throughout Mesa and neighboring counties. We are on call 24/7 to support the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office with any and all search and rescue efforts free of charge, from safely carrying out injured mountain bikers to finding lost individuals in the mountains. Our goal, to help out those who are just having a bad day!
