Eugene Mountain Rescue

Our Mission

Eugene Mountain Rescue exists to provide Lane County with trained volunteer rescuers for emergencies in mountain areas and steep terrain. Founded in 1968, our volunteers are ready to respond 24 hours a day to people in need.

EMR also works in our community to promote outdoor safety and safe mountaineering practices. We are an all volunteer, non-profit organization based out of Eugene and we are nationally certified through the Mountain Rescue Association.

We work in conjunction with Lane County Search and Rescue. In addition, we respond to mutual aid calls to other counties throughout Oregon and the Northwest.
