Deschutes County: Mountain Rescue Unit

In the vast Deschutes County wilderness there are countless inaccessible and dangerous places to get lost or injured. The Mountain Rescue Unit (MRU) not only covers mountainous snow, rock, and glacier terrain, but they also have the internal capability for rescues on technical rock climbing routes and caves.

A special thanks to the special sponsors who support the Mountain Rescue Unit with the gear and training.

Mountain Rescue Unit Mission Statement:

MRU is willing to access, search, reach, treat, package, and transport a casualty from any terrestrial location within Deschutes County during any season of the year. Locations include, but are not limited to: cliff faces of any angle, cave environments, wilderness and alpine areas, Smith Rock climbing area, and any area requiring technical travel or footing.
