Thanks to our supporters:
RMRG membership spans a diversity of skills and
experiences, from physicians with Avy-3 credentials, to backcountry hunters who can repair
a broken snowmobile in the field, to 5-12 climbers, to hikers who had never used a rope
before they came to an RMR event. We seek new members on an ongoing basis, and we seek a
range of skills and experiences with a diversity similar to our membership (

intelligence, judgment, character, love of the outdoors and a desire to help others as part
of a team.
If you are interested in learning more about the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group or
becoming a volunteer rescuer with us, please start your involvement by attending one of our
Wednesday night training meetings (see Calendar link to the left). At these meetings we

related topic. Following the meeting there is time for prospective volunteers to hear more
about RMRG and ask questions.
While most Wednesday night meetings are open to the public, Sunday field practices
are open only to members and prospective members who have been through a Prospective Training Program.
