Mission Statistics - Click here for complete details.
- Rescues are field missions where an accident victim requires evacuation or assistance by RMRG. Rescue missions may include search efforts.
- Incidents are calls for assistance where the problem is resolved before RMRG members get into the field (out of their cars). Incidents occasionally require considerable effort to resolve.
- "Other" are requests for assistance not involving mountain rescue services.
