Colorado Mounted Rangers (CMR) training includes a wide range of areas such as first aid, CPR, arrest control procedures, tactical baton and qualification with firearms several times a year.

Would you recommend Colorado Mounted Rangers - State Wide?

by michael f. from OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (December 17, 2009)
Proudly, I'm a former Captain of Rangers of Troop K, Aurora,Co until 1991 when I retired from the U.S. Army at Ft. Carson,Co and relocated to Florida. The Rangers are one of finest organisations I've ever been associated with. There kown for assisting Law enforcement,Disaster relief,missing persons,traffic movement,disabled assistance and augementation and inclusion with local,state,federal law enforcement during certain joint projects. A Ranger takes no monies for his services to their fellow Coloradans. At times they may put their lives on the line especially during rescue service. I hope everyone in Colorado will remember volunteerism is the Soul of America.
