Rescue cards help fund local emergency responders

State program subsidizes Colorado SAR
Officials from several agencies plan a rescue. Funds from hunting and fishing licenses help pay for search-and-rescue operations in Colorado, but for hikers, the best option is the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue card.
Bryant AuCoin with La Plata County Search and Rescue ascends with an unidentified swimmer in June after the swimmer became stranded in Cascade Creek, which contains a series of waterfall on private property that local officials discourage people from entering. For every $3 Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue card purchased, $2 goes into a coffer that the state will use to Colorado’s search-and-rescue organizations.
Members of La Plata County Search and Rescue pull the body of man who drowned in the Animas River on July 15, 2015, just north of Bakers Bridge, north of Durango. La Plata County Search and Rescue averages between 32 to 42 missions annually.
Colorado Search and Rescue cards cost $3 – cheap insurance if you ever find yourself lost in the backcountry.
Where to buy a CORSAR card

A Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue card can be purchased at 12 locations in Durango, including Backcountry Experience, Walmart, Durango Outdoor Exchange and Mountain Bike Specialists.
