Meet the Mesa County Search and Rescue Ground Team!!!

    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! 

    All ground team members must complete an entry PM Class, hold a current CPR/Basic First aid certification, pass an annual knot test, fitness hike, backcountry navigation test using a map and compass and meet weekly training/mission attendance standards. 

    The ground team is also capable of deploying and supporting many other resources in the field depending on our mission. These Include, but are not limited to, Advanced Medical Training. Swift-Water Rescue Swimmers, K9 Search Dogs and their Handlers, Man-tracking Teams, Technical Rope Rescue Techs, ATV, Boat and Helicopter Specialists and Evidence Search Personnel.

 What's New for Search and Rescue??


Happy Saturday Community!

We are exactly 3 weeks away from our Rock & Raft Event. Last year's event brought hundreds of people to raft the Colorado River and rock out to The Wrong Impressions and other bands. This year, we are asking you to PLEASE PARK IN THE BOTANICAL GARDENS PARKING LOT. We will have our team members shuttle people from Botanical Gardens to Corn Lake, plus it will be free parking :). We also highly recommend that you were your own PFDs for your safety!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!!

Thank You Community for your support in this!!!

Join us for the third Annual Rock & Raft event. Put in at Corn Lake and raft with friends and family to the Watson Island/Botanical Gardens Amphitheater. We will have cornhole tournaments, prizes, live music from Sixteen-Forty The Wrong Impressions and Suckafish, a beer garden presented by the Elks Lodge, food and Colorado sunshine. This trip takes approx. 2-3 hours on the river. Rafters can bring their own gear or rent from local sponsors such as Rapid Creek Cycles & Sports

All proceeds benefit the Mesa County Search and Rescue.

This event will be put on by the Mesa County Search and Rescue Swift Water Team . Join the event ..updates, info and coming soon!
