Search & Rescue
The Busiest SAR Team in Utah!
When people think of Moab, Utah, they think of world-class outdoor recreation. To many, it's the mountain biking capitol of the universe. To others, lured by the exciting rapids of the Colorado River, it's a rafting mecca. An endless maze of redrock canyons and cliffs beckons hikers, climbers, jeep aficionados and others from all over the world.
More than a million visitors a year funnel through this small town in rural
southeastern Utah, most on their way to that long-awaited "adventure of a
lifetime." Having an adventure is guaranteed out here, but a few folks get more than
they bargained for.
And That's Where We Come In
The Grand County Search and Rescue team has evolved over the years from an informal
jeep posse under the wing of an authentic western sheriff to a well-trained crew of
volunteers known for their professionalism. Within the ranks of the core
Grand County SAR team, specialized units have been formed to tackle the diverse rescue challenges
presented by the awesome canyon country surrounding Moab. The regular schedule of general
SAR training, along with additional training for the specialized units, ensures that the
volunteers of GCSAR are ready to do the best job during your worst times.
