The Search and Rescue subcommittee is inclusive of all authorized Search and Rescue teams in Montana and has participation from both Sheriff’s Office agency team members and volunteer team members. 

This subcommittee is the opportunity to discuss challenges in Search and Rescue and identify solutions.
