Before the Second World War, the necessary rescue operations in the Vorderstoder mountains were carried out by the local gendarmes, but after the war the large number of skiers on the Loigistal descent, which was set up in 1932, made it necessary to set up a separate rescue group. In the autumn of 1948, the Vorderstoder local branch was officially founded at the Steinerwirt in Vorderstoder with 15 founding members. The local manager was Franz Nestlehner, innkeeper at the Zellerhütte. The first head of operations was Fritz Köfler, who unfortunately had a fatal accident on the Spitzmauer in 1951.


Nestlehner's successor was Hermann Stadler, who headed the local office from 1973 to 1991. During his time, the Loigistalhütte was leased and expanded, and it is still used today as a base for the regular on-call service at weekends in winter. In 1991 Fritz Gschaider took over the management of the local office. From 2000 to 2012, Markus Rammer and from 2012 to 2021 Thomas Popp were local branch managers. Niklas Rebhandl has held this position since 2021.
