New Members Orientation Program
The 2014 six week new member classes concluded in May. We normally conduct only one new member class per year.
Colorado Gives Day
Park County Search and Rescue is registered with the organization sponsoring Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. To motivate donors to give on Colorado Gives Day, Community First Foundation and FirstBank partnered to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund. The incentive fund, one of the largest giving-day incentive funds in the country, proportionally increases the value of every dollar donated on that day. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. Members of the public who would like to make a tax deductible donation to Park County Search and Rescue on Colorado Gives Day may do so at this webpage on the ColoradoGives website.
Park County Search and Rescue (PCSAR) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to serving Park County, Colorado in the many facets of wilderness emergency. We are dispatched by the Park County Sheriff's Office and respond to approximately 50 calls per year, ranging from overdue hikers to technical rescues to out-of-county assists.
Along with our primary focus on saving lives, we offer Wilderness Safety and Awareness education to the community through on site visits, Hug-a-Tree Presentations and our regular Tuesday night trainings in Bailey and Fairplay. These trainings are always open to the public and we welcome you to join us.
If you'd like to join our team, become involved, or request a non-emergency service provided by PCSAR, please feel free to contact us or attend one of our Tuesday night trainings.
