Support Teams / Divisions


Members of the Tip Top Search and Rescue follow Standard Operating Guidelines (SOG) for searches and rescues. The first part of the SOG is a list of special teams with their supporting members and team leader.

Tip Top has twelve distinct teams:

  • Avalanche
  • ATV
  • Backcountry
  • High Angle
  • Ice
  • Medical
  • Short Haul
  • Swift Water
  • Snowmobile
  • Technology/Mapping
  • Water/Dive/Boat

Each team has its own special training. To be part of the specialized team, a member has to go through training for that individual team. Many of the searches require all members or at least members from several different teams.
