- The nonprofit rescue group, Rocky Mountain Rescue Group (RMRG) serving Boulder County, is preparing to make the seasonal change from snow gear to hiking boots as they prepare for increased rescue needs in the warmer months. Now in its 76th year of operation, RMRG is under pressure to cater to more calls. The team of 75 now reportedly responds to nearly 200 calls a year, which according to the Boulder Reporting Lab, “has increased nearly 40% in less than 10 years.” We see most accidents when the weather is nice and it’s fun to be outside, said Angela Tomczyk, a 10-year veteran of the RMRG. As more people turn to Boulder’s more accessible outdoor activities, the RMRG has also had to grow increasingly efficient, sometimes answering as many as five calls a day in the peak summer.
