El Paso County Search & Rescue is a mountain search and rescue unit dedicated to saving lives through search, rescue and mountain safety education. The team is composed totally of volunteers and is available upon request for help with mountain search and rescue anywhere in Colorado under the authority of the local county sheriff or in other states and countries under local authority. The team is able to search for downed aircraft and lost people by tracing the location of the aircrafts emergency location transmitter as well personal locator beacons. The members, numbering over 70 strong, serve in a variety of roles while working towards a single goal – saving lives.

The members of the team are unpaid volunteers selected from the community. They typically accept applications during the last quarter of the year for consideration for the next year’s New Member class.
