Beaverhead Search and Rescue will begin construction this summer to expand their headquarters in Dillon, according to Mel Rice, public relations coordinator.
Beaverhead Search and Rescue has outgrown their facility, according to Rice. They moved into their building in 1995. Over the years, they have obtained a lot of equipment and need more storage space.
They will construct an addition on the south side of the building. It will cost about $12,000 to build. With community support and fundraising throughout the year they will be able to pay for the addition.
"It will allow us to be more organized with where all of our equipment is rather than having to change bays all of the time when we come back from a search and put equipment away," Rice said. "We'll possibly be able to designate specific places for all of our equipment or certain pieces of equipment."
Construction will begin at the end of June or early July.
