Park County Search and Rescue
Donate to the Team
While we fall under the control of the Park County Sheriff, we operate on an extremely small budget. The team is funded almost exclusively by donations, fund raisers, and grants. PCSAR has no paid employees. The funds we receive as donations are used to acquire and maintain our rescue/command center vehicles, snowmobiles, ATVs, repair and replace team gear (such as litters, ropes, climbing hardware, medical equipment, and radios) and operational expenses.
Park County Search and Rescue, Inc. (PCSAR) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization funded in a large part by the generous contributions from our community. You can help benefit PCSAR with a tax deductible contribution by either method below (A copy of our IRS 501(c)(3) letter can be provided for your records upon request):

New members are accepted at any time throughout the year. If you are interested in becoming a member of PCSAR you will need to complete a resume, waiver, and submit information for a background check. The board of directors will review your resume and if your background check clears with the Park County Sheriff you will be invited to join our team as a prospective member. Prospective members will complete a checklist of skills, with the support of a mentor, taking approximately three months. Upon completion of the prospective member checklist you will rank up to a full team member ready to respond to mission callouts.
