It is with excitement that we announce Backcountry SOS is now available for free to residents and visitors. Backcountry SOS is a free smartphone app that when users are in an emergency situation, they can text information directly to 911 via the Text to 911 system in Natrona County.

“This technology is a great tool. It is not a tracking program, but a smart phone app that uses your phone’s GPS, asks you some key questions about the situation you are in, and then automatically generates an accurate text message for you using your phones default text message system.” stated Sgt. Bart Olson, Natrona County Sheriff's Office’s Search and Rescue Program Coordinator.
