Tonto Rim Search And Rescue Squad


Rim Country - Arizona's Favorite Playground

We work hard to keep it safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Explore this site and learn about what we do. We are volunteers who do this because we love the outdoors and wish to give something back.

Please consider a donation to help support our efforts. We volunteer our time, skills, and considerable personal equipment. However, specialized rescue equipment, medical equipment, and specialized training take significant amounts of our annual budget. We are not publicly funded, and rely on the goodness of those who live in and visit this wonderful area.

Our General Membership meeting is held once a month on the 2nd Thursday of the month and is held at the Payson Library Meeting room in Rumsey Park at 7:00 PM. Everyone welcome!

If you have an emergency, we can't be dispatched until the Gila County Sheriff's Office dispatches us. The fastest way to make that happen is to call 911.

Thank You!

Rushing To The Rescue

Search and Rescue volunteers test rigging in a deadly canyon.

The metal basket jerked side to side then suddenly fell free, sliding down the rocky 300-foot cliff in a remote canyon north of Roosevelt Lake. I clutched the camera to my chest. Strapped in like a mummy, I was helpless to do anything but take a picture......More Here

Fossil Creek closure to be lifted.

Release Date: Jul 10, 2014 Contact(s): Fossil Creek
Wild & Scenic Info Hotline: 928-226-4611

Flagstaff, Ariz. The area of Fossil Creek that has been closed due to extreme fire danger
since June 6 will be open Friday (July 11) at 8 a.m. The closure is being lifted due to recent rains and
higher humidity, which have changed conditions for the area such that fire danger has lessened and
visitor access will be allowed.

Visitors are reminded that even though gas stoves are allowed in the area, there is a permanent
ban on the use of campfires and charcoal in the Fossil Creek area.

Additionally, on weekends vehicle access is limited into Fossil Creek on Forest Road 708 from
Camp Verde and to the Fossil Spring Trailhead parking lot from Strawberry. Only a certain amount of
vehicles will be allowed entrance in order to keep roads clear for emergency access and protect
visitor health and safety. For more information, call the Fossil Creek hotline at 928-226-4611.
