Ouray Mountain Rescue Team
The Ouray Mountain Rescue Team was formed in 1974 in the picturesqe town of Ouray deep in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado. After 25 years, our mantra remains "Anyone, anywhere, any time".
The Ouray Mountain Rescue Team was incorporated as a non-profit organization to serve the technical rescue and emergency medical service needs of Ouray County and the surrounding mountain communities of southwestern Colorado. Our team is made up entirely of volunteers and all of our financial support comes from fund raising events, merchandise sales, donations, and grants.
To maintain a ready capability to carry out humanitarian search, rescue and recovery operations in mountainous terrain, under all climatic conditions, and in any other situations compatible with Team capabilities.
