As an entirely volunteer rescue squad, we provide no-cost regional response for cave, cliff, high-angle, urban and rough terrain search and rescue operations.

We act in conjunction with, and support local Fire Departments, Rescue Squads and Law Enforcement Agencies. 

Each member provides their time, effort and personal equipment.  We need your help in maintaining our organizational equipment, replenishing our consumable supplies, and satisfying our overhead operating costs.
