Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, Inc. (RMRG) is an all-volunteer organization trained and equipped for search and rescue on mountainous terrain in all weather conditions. Founded in 1947, we are Boulder County's primary mountain rescue agency, but upon request also assist other mountain rescue teams outside the county. We also provide outdoor recreation safety education and disaster response services. RMRG is a non-profit IRS 501(c)3 organization and we do not charge for our services.

Becoming a Prospective Member

RMRG's Sunday field practices (and occasional Wednesday night practices) are only open to members and explicitly approved prospective members. In order to participate in field practices and apply for membership, prospective members must first complete the Prospective Training Program (PTP).

The PTP is a series of meetings and weekend trainings that provide new recruits with the background and skills to begin the process towards full membership.  After completing the PTP, it takes Prospective Members (PM's) anywhere from six to eighteen months of regular attendance at meetings and practices before being ready to submit a membership application. Election to membership is determined by a majority vote of active members. Completion of the PTP is absolutely not a guarantee of election to membership. Although not required, nearly all of our members live in Boulder County.

Prospective Training Program (PTP)

After careful discussion, we have decided to NOT have a PTP program in 2018.  The next updates to the training and intake program to RMRG will be released in spring 2019. 


Membership Policy (PDF) - describes the process and requirements for applying. You are responsible for knowing the requirements of a Support member and the application process according to Membership Policy.

Membership Application (PDF) - This is the final step towards membership.  Once you have completed the PTP and have met the requirements in the membership policy document above, this is the application you submit to be considered for membership.
