Rampart Search and Rescue

A nonprofit organization

Funding is only one way to show our support. Rampart Search and Rescue volunteers take a risk every time they go out to rescue someone, and that risk is heightened now due to COVID-19. We never charge for our services. Please consider a donation to Rampart Search and Rescue. Thank you!


Commerce City Police Dept worked one of its most complicated cases in the history of this Police Dept. Investigators obtained information about a missing child who might have been the victim of a homicide. The child was reported as being thrown in a dumpster in Commerce City. We would not have been successful without your assistance. I want sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart. Chuck Saunier, Chief of Police

Background Statement

Rampart search and rescue has responded to Adams County's emergencies since 1999. Over the past 20 years we have responded to: Hurricane Katrina, tornados in eastern Colorado, floods, homicides, drownings, those with Alzheimer's and Dementia, missing adults and children, evidence searches, cadaver searches, stranded motorists on I-70 east of Denver when shut down due to blizzards, and the list keeps getting longer..

We have several internal teams: K9 search dogs, 4x4, Drone, Dive and Bike. We average 60 to 90 searches a year. We have also responded to non traditional search and rescue requests over the years. We're now serving Lincoln county here in Colorado.

The members of the team are unpaid volunteers from the community. We accept applications year-round for both Adult and our Cadet program (10 - 20 years old).

For those in school that need volunteer hours for graduation can help us (as cadets) and all hours: trainings, meetings and helping at events such as the county fair... can be use towards your volunteer hours. Please contact us for more information.
