Help Us Raise the 2019 Operating Budget
As you know, we at the Ouray Mountain Rescue Team are a small group of dedicated volunteers who, since 1974, have been providing a service that is both unique and essential to our mountain community. We perform a wide range of search and rescue services for Ouray County and the surrounding communities of the San Juan Mountains that can be summed up in three words – WE SAVE LIVES.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO SAVE LIVES?
Team Training – Our volunteers commit countless hours to consistently train and maintain a high level of competence in a wide variety of search and rescue situations.
Availability – Our volunteers are on call 24/7 ready to stop whatever they are doing to mobilize sustained rescue efforts in all conditions.
Equipment – We maintain a large variety of highly specialized equipment necessary for rescue operations in challenging terrain and environments.
Vehicles – Thanks to generous support of donors like you, we recently upgraded our primary rescue vehicle but that, along with our other vehicles requires routine maintenance and timely updating.
MOST IMPORTANTLY – IT TAKES YOU!
The Ouray Mountain Rescue Team is an all-volunteer, self-funded organization. All of our funding comes from sales of team-logo merchandise, small community grants, and most notably individual donations and small community grants. Without your generosity, we simply cannot function the way we need to in order to SAVE LIVES. Your support helps us to sustain all the elements of our operations so that we can focus on our mission – humanitarian search, rescue, and recovery.
OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $30,000 THIS YEAR. HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP
