Here For You

When people head into Red River Gorge, they don’t plan on having an accident or getting lost. But when “nature happens,” calls for help go out to county search and rescue crews.

Make A Difference

We seek new members on an ongoing basis, and we seek a range of skills and experiences.

Professional Skills - Volunteer Team

We are a volunteer team that believes in the highest standards of training.

Want To Help Powell County Search and Rescue?
There are several ways to do it!

Powell County Search & Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization working in the Red River Gorge Geological Area of the Daniel Boone National Forest. The volunteers of Search & Rescue spend hundreds of hours each year donating their time and talents to rescuing folks from cliffs and rugged terrain. Each rescue is unique and each person we rescue has a story to tell. We invite you to join with us in our mission of saving lives! You can become a valuable part of this effort by helping us accomplish what we are finding to be more and more difficult: funding these rescue missions from our own pockets.

Make A Donation

Powell County Search and Rescue is a non-profit, all volunteer organization funded entirely through individual donations, and fundraisings.

Become A Volunteer

There are many different roles and levels of support – you don’t have to be a world-class climber to provide an indispensable service to the search and rescue community.
