Mesa County Search & Rescue, organized in 1966 with a few Sheriff Posse members and citizen band radio operators. It is now a non-profit organization with several individual clubs or groups. Excluding the officials of the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), SARC is strictly a volunteer organization.
All manpower and personal equipment is given as needed. When working on an official mission, all volunteers (as required by Colorado law) are under the jurisdiction of the Mesa County Sheriff. When a request for assistance is made by the MCSO, SARC volunteers are dispatched as needed to complete the mission. These volunteers may be on foot, horseback, ATV, boat, or snowmobile as needed. Whatever the conditions, members do their best to meet those demands.
Mesa County Search & Rescue is dispatched by Grand Junction Regional Communication Center.
