Our Team


Rampart Search and Rescue is the only Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team in the state of Colorado. Other Colorado teams work in the mountains (west of I-25). Our rescue team has been providing search and rescue services for more than 19 years, providing professional search and rescue services for Adams, Lincoln and Morgan counties here in Colorado.

Rampart Search and Rescue (RSAR) has over 40 members that operate under the authority of the Adams Comty County Sheriff. In the state of Colorado the Sheriff is the one responsible for all search and rescue with his/her jurisdiction. We provide search and rescue resources locally or out of state when requested.

Our services are provided free of charge; therefore, we rely heavily on your tax-deductible donations. We are a 501 (c) (3) under the IRS tax code. Our team relies on the generous contributions of the community (like you) to fulfill our mission of saving lives. Please help us by giving a donation today. Any amount will help, and your gift stays right here in Colorado. 

More than a million visitors to Colorado funnel through Adams, Lincoln and Morgan Counties each year. They arrive by vehicle on I-70, I-76 or by air through DIA. Most of those are on their way to that long-awaited "adventure of a lifetime". Having an adventure is guaranteed in Colorado year around. Rampart Search and Rescue has to be ready just in case a few folks get more than they bargained for.

Additionally, we are strong in specialized tactics specific to the three counties we serve. Our specilities include urban search and rescue and rescue stranded motorist during adverse winter weather.

Through our partnership with the Colorado Search and Rescue Board (which we are a member), we can effect mutual aid search and rescue operations not only in Adams, Lincoln and Morgan counties, but wherever we may be needed in Colorado or in other states.
