The Mountain Rescue Association (MRA) was established in 1959
at Timberline Lodge at Mount Hood, Oregon making us the oldest Search and Rescue Association in the United States. MRA is an organization of teams dedicated to saving lives through rescue and mountain safety education. We do so by improving the quality, availability, & safety of mountain search & rescue. With over 90 government authorized units, MRA has grown to become the critical mountain search & rescue resource in North America.
