WEST YELLOWSTONE – West Yellowstone has new Search and Rescue cache.

Montana’s busiest Search and Rescue teams are based in Gallatin County, and with the completion of the facility in West, each of its three teams now has a home base.

Funded through the countywide 1 mill levy specifically for SAR Services, the building’s total cost was $439,389.00. $139,000 came from capital savings within SAR and a $300,000 loan.

Search and Rescue is a volunteer force of the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office. It responds to an average of 100 calls per year.

“Our community members are very outdoor recreation oriented and value the opportunities this county has to offer,” Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin said. “The SAR volunteers have outstanding skills and this facility is part of our responsibility to support their important work.”

The building is located at 416 Yellowstone Ave.
