The Allegheny Mountain Rescue Group (AMRG) is an all-volunteer 501c search and rescue organization that assists in searching for and rescuing lost or missing persons.
Our primary response area is in south-western Pennsylvania and our assistance extends to the mid-Atlantic region. AMRG provides specialized resources with trained searchers, wilderness medicine, search management, search canines and technical repo rescues in caves and mountains.
AMRG is a certified member of the Pennsylvania Search and Rescue Council (PSARC), the Appalachian Search and Rescue Conference (ASRC) and the Mountain Rescue Association (MRA).
In June of 2021, our organization is hosting the Mountain Rescue Association’s International Search and Rescue Conference at Seven Springs Mountain Resort. The MRA Conference is invaluable for volunteer search and rescue organizations (SAR). It is the primary method for SAR organizations and first responders to stay in compliance with the latest rescue equipment and techniques, networking with other organizations and research on the most effective ways to rescue an individual with minimal risk.
As volunteer organizations however, we need your help. Our organization is currently seeking corporate sponsors for the event. We are asking your corporation to help our fundraising effots and to assist in the continual training of those individuals who help locate missing persons.
Allegheny Mountain Rescue Group (AMRG) is hosting the annual Mountain Rescue Association’s (MRA) International Search and Rescue Conference at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, June 10-13, 2021. This conference is the only national conference in the US focused on volunteer search and rescue. It draws attendees from the 90 MRA accredited MRA teams, as well as many other search and rescue teams from across the country and nationally. We are expecting several hundred attendees, many of whom are decision makers and senior members in their units.
Exhibitor fees are $500, including a 6×8 ft table in the exhibitor space in the conference hall and access to all conference sessions. Silver-level or higher MRA sponsors will have their exhibitor fee covered by the MRA, as part of the sponsorship contract.
Up to three company representatives can purchase a meal plan for $200. To participate in any of the pre-conference courses and clinics, company representatives must register separately, unless your company is a sponsor of the particular event. We will register all of your company representatives as there are caps on registration and reserved spots for industry partners.
