The men and women volunteers who make up the Grand County Search and Rescue team are tied together by one common goal – helping people. On Sunday, Sept. 10, community members have a chance to give back to the volunteers who give so much to keep them safe.

Search and Rescue welcomes community members to attend its golf tournament, SAR For The Course at Grand Elk Golf Course in Granby. The tournament will be a four-person scramble, with a 9 a.m. check in and a 10 a.m. shotgun start. All proceeds will benefit Grand County Search and Rescue.

Search and Rescue is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year with a fully qualified team of trained personnel to deal with any search or rescue within its scope. In 2022, the organization responded to 67 incidents involving over 10,784 man-hours of search and rescue activities for residents and visitors. Last year, 13 lives were saved and 52 individuals impacted.

The organization assists skiers, snowmobilers, hikers, hunters, snowshoers, climbers, mountain bikers and lost children. Volunteers have been on scene for car wrecks, bus wrecks, airplane accidents, forest fires and train derailments. When the public needs mountain search and rescue services, Search and Rescue is there.
