The map links for the individual calendar events on the CU campus do not work,
because Google hasn't mapped the campus (yet?). Be sure to click on the
meeting for the scheduled location. Most of our Wednesday night
training lectures are in

RMRG training lectures are open to the public except as noted. As of January 1, 2013, field training
is limited to members only.
Practice and meeting topics / times are subject to change. Please
follow RMRG's participation guidelines when attending RMRG activities.
Mountain Search and Rescue Techniques - RMRG wrote one of the original
books on mountain rescue in 1973. We encourage prospective members to buy the book
and review appropriate sections prior to attending training events. See our
Book Page for purchasing information.
This information is intended to acquaint prospective members (generally
called "Prospectives") participating in RMRG activities of relevant
policies and expectations. These guidelines protect both RMRG and
yourself and are not all inclusive. If you have
questions, please ask, preferably in person at one of our meetings or
On all RMRG practices and missions you are always expected to
function safely and use good judgment. Never attempt to perform a task
for which you are not properly skilled, equipped, or prepared for at the
time. You will never be forced to do anything that you do not want to
do. If you feel you are getting in over your head or want a belay, speak
Safety is extremely important to us. We encourage your immediate
input to anything which you feel is unsafe or questionable during any
operation of the Group.
Prospectives are NOT members of RMRG and thus are not recognized
representatives of RMRG. RMRG will notify relevant authorities of
individuals who claim to have been or be "with" RMRG when in fact they
were not members. Your association with RMRG as a prospective member
does not permit you to display the RMRG or MRA emblems.
RMRG members and prospective members should park legally for all
practices and meetings.
It is to your benefit to know as many members of RMRG as
possible and for them to know you. We must be able to evaluate you and
your capabilities so be active and ask questions.
If you are signing up for an EMT or any other class that
requires you to be associated with an organization and you intend to use
RMRG as that organization, you MUST write to the RMRG Executive Board
for permission to do so.
Prospective members may NOT respond to a rescue unless
specifically asked to by an RMRG member. There are serious legal reasons
If you have been asked to respond to a mission, drive
cautiously! We are not exempt from the law, and it is RMRG's
long-standing policy that your traffic tickets are your problem: A
mountain rescue call is not an excuse to speed. When arriving at mission
base, check in with the RMR mission leader.
Press relations at missions and at other times are to be handled
only by designated members. Participants at missions, practices, or
other activities should direct any questions to an appropriate senior
member. Names of victims and members should not be given out.
