Our View: Thanks for all you do Sheriff's Office, Search and Rescue

The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office helped out at the Imerys Community Day event last year.

If you are an active user of Facebook and have not done so already, I would highly recommend following the pages of the Gallatin Valley Sheriff's Office and the Gallatin County Search and Rescue. Throughout the year the pages do an amazing job of not only updating the public but truly showing how much the two agencies do for the Gallatin Valley.

Over the past few weeks, there have been informative posts about COVID-19 related scams circulating through the valley, updates on the drinking water situation in West Yellowstone, and other pertinent information for county residents. There have also been posts about the amazing work done by the search and rescue including responding to a raft that had gone over House Rock and dumped the rafters, a runaway raft, a stranded motorist who was stuck in the mud and a call to assist a hiker who was having a medical emergency.

The examples listed above are just some of the many things they do over the course of the year.

The Sheriff's Office also took time recently to discuss demonstrations and praising those who peacefully exercised their rights.

The hard work they do throughout the year should always be commended but perhaps there is no better time than now to thank them for just how much they do.

Whenever they are needed – they are there – and it is pretty scary to think about how dangerous many of these situations would be without their response.

Thanks for what you do 24/7, 365 – local residents are lucky to have you.
