Search and Rescue

Learn about Boone County's Search and Rescue Agency.

Boone County Search & Rescue consists of a group of professional volunteers who receive specialized training in not just land and water rescues, but also traffic control, storm spotting, and support functions to other emergency response agencies. 

Boone County Search & Rescue has a long list of specialty rescue equipment at their disposal that has been acquired through donations, fundraisers, and grants. Some of the items these include are flat bottom airboats, rubber dive/rescue boats, an amphibious ATV, a self-contained trailer to fill SCBA air tanks for firefighters/divers on long responses, and multiple response vehicles. 

Boone County Search & Rescue is like many volunteer agencies that only survive on the generosity of the communities they support and the people willing to donate their time. If you would like to volunteer or make a donation please contact:

Chris Hayes or 515-433-0592
