A new phone scam regarding Gallatin County Search and Rescue has reportedly been circulating in the area.

The Gallatin County Sheriff's office says a company may be soliciting funds for Search and Rescue over the phone. Gallatin County SAR says they do not and will not EVER solicit money from the public over the phone.

Officials say there is no need to report the calls to law enforcement because the company is using clever language to skirt the law and is not technically in violation of any statute.
