We respond to an average of 100 missions every year, all year, anytime day or night, regardless of weather or terrain.

“When I twisted my ankle and heard an unpleasant sound, I knew that I was in trouble. An insignificant injury is far from it when you are out on the trails and faced with no way to get home…. The least I can do is to help support their [SMR’s] efforts so that they can continue to what they do best… helping people in need.”


“I wouldn’t be here today if it was not for the selflessness of your members. When I learned that you were an all volunteer organization I decided to make an effort to support your cause.
