Summit County is an area of 1900 square miles, about the size of Delaware. It stretches from the crest of the Wasatch Mountains east of Salt Lake to include the resort community of Park City, eastward over 100 miles. This also includes the rugged Uinta Mountains, listed by Nat Geo among the 10 deadliest regions on earth. The mean elevation of the county is about 8,400 feet with the high point at 13,500 feet. During 2019 the SAR team operationally deployed over 100 times throughout the county; the volunteers drop what they are doing to help residents or visitors who find themselves in serious destress. These missions are seldom on lovely summer afternoons, rather dark and stormy conditions that may last for days.
