On July 24, 1962 ten men created and incorporated Mountain Patrol of Montana whose primary mission, unlike that of any other resource in the County, was solely search and rescue. This created the first volunteer unit in Cascade County having search and rescue as their primary mission. By State law, search and rescue is under the direction of the Sheriff's Office.
These men and women are prepared for rescue and recovery by water and land, specializing in anything from rappelling to diving. Cascade County Search and Rescue is still a group of dedicated volunteers and two Deputies who are on call 24/7, 365, to assure when someone needs help, they are there.
If you are interested in joining Cascade County Search and Rescue, please contact Commandeer Corey Hansen 406-231-8335.
