Commander Ricky Summers ...
Ricky Summers was born in State College, PA on Oct 03, 1972. I joined the Air Force in Nov 1991; in April 1992 I was stationed here at Mountain Home AFB and retired from the Air Force Jan 2013. I joined Elmore County Search & Rescue in Sept 2008 and have enjoyed all the training and SAR missions to help rescue lost and injured subjects. I was elected ECSAR Commander (SAR 1) January 2013. I am an avid outdoors man while enjoying hunting, fishing, ATV's, UTV's, motorcycling, hiking, snowmobiling, and camping. I enjoy my time with this great organization. The best part of our organization is that all members are volunteers which makes this unit unique. We have a very diverse county with every style of terrain imaginable from desert to rivers and rolling hills to 10,000 ft mountain peaks. We have many different sizes of water reservoirs from ponds to 3 different dams, streams and even the mighty Snake River. If you get lost in Elmore County we will find you.
