Powell County Search & Rescue was established in 2013 with 20 volunteers with a desire to help those in need. Red River Gorge is a beautiful place of fun, hiking, camping, and rock climbing. Sometimes our mistakes could lead to injury to ourselves and the time comes when you need a team to rescue you. We have certified rescuers who are trained in search and rescue, swift water, rope techs and medical. Powell County Search & Rescue treats every family like their own. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which receives donations and grants to support the team with equipment. With the generous donations from our supporters, we can continue our missions of rescuing those in need.
