- In keeping with the State of Vermont, we do not charge for rescue.
- We never want financial considerations to deter someone for calling for the help that they need.
- We’re a town agency and have a budget from the Town of Stowe that we are incredibly grateful for.
- Any additional training and equipment costs are met by voluntary donations to the Stowe Mountain Rescue Association.
So there you have it: you can hesitate to call if you think you’ve got things covered, but never for fear of being presented with a bill for rescue. Breathe easy on that front. And keep in mind that by dialing 911 you’re not necessarily committing to a full-scale rescue and a story on our Facebook page.
It could simply result in a phone consultation that puts you on our radar and allows us to track your progress. We can stay on standby and will happily swing into action if you need it.
