Our History

Routt County Search & Rescue (RCSAR) was incorporated in 1968 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization under the jurisdiction of the State of Colorado and the Routt County Sheriff’s Department.

RCSAR functions as a volunteer agency providing search and evacuation services in the Routt County backcountry. We aid the Routt County Sheriff’s Department, all five Fire and Ambulance districts serving Routt County, Civil Air Patrol and the Steamboat Ski Patrol.

As a member of the Colorado Search and Rescue Association (CSAR) we also provide aid to other Search and Rescue (SAR) units in and out of Colorado.
