A Unique Paradigm

San Juan County covers 388 square miles (1005 sq km) of some of the most remote and dramatic terrain in the contiguous United States, of which Silverton (pop. 637) is the only incorporated town. We also boast the highest mean elevation in the country at 11240 feet.

With our incident types ranging from everyday lift-assists and cardiovascular compromises to backcountry motor vehicle accidents and alpine rescues, our personnel must be ready to respond to and manage an uncommon range of scenarios. While the two agencies must remain separate on the books, we treat them functionally as one in the same. You can find out more about the tax statuses and philosophies of the individual agencies by clicking the icons below.
