Portland Mountain Rescue search and rescue missions are coordinated through county emergency service authorities. We do maintain an information line accessible by the public
To Report An Emergency: Dial 911 for the County Sheriff
Please note: Calls from mountain and backcountry areas might not be routed to the nearest dispatch office, so it may take time to explain where you are and how they should get to you.
After you call 911, save your cell phone battery and keep your phone available for further contact with rescue personnel.
To Contact PMR Directly: Call 503-222-PMRU (7678)
Please note: Since PMR is an all volunteer organization, we do not have dedicated staff to directly answer your call. However, our third party answering service will forward your message to the appropriate PMR member as soon as possible. Thank you.
