|The Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) Card was established to allow those who use Colorado's backcountry to contribute to the fund, even if they don't have a current hunting or fishing license, snowmobile, ATV or boat registration, all of which contribute to the fund through a surcharge. The fund reimburses county government for expenses incurred during search and rescue activities.|
Why Buy a CORSAR Card?
Colorado residents and visitors are well served by dedicated volunteer search and rescue teams, but mission costs are often in the thousands of dollars. By purchasing a CORSAR card you are contributing to the Search and Rescue Fund, which will reimburse these teams for costs incurred in your search and rescue. Funds remaining at the end of the year are used to help pay for training and equipment for these teams. Anyone with a current hunting/fishing license or boat, snowmobile, ATV registration is already covered by the fund.
The CORSAR Card Is Not Insurance
The card is not insurance and does not reimburse individuals nor does it pay for medical transport. Medical transport includes helicopter flights or ground ambulance. If aircraft are used as a search vehicle, those costs are reimbursed by the fund. If the aircraft becomes a medical transport due to a medical emergency, the medical portion of the transport is not covered.
The CORSAR cards are available for $3 for one year and $12 for five years and can be purchased in person or on-line.
In cooperation with Colorado Department of Local Affairs, a Snaggy diMe is making the COSAR card avaialble to our customers. For the cost of the card you have helped ensure that trained and well equipped search and rescue teams will respond should you become lost or in need of rescue. Furthermore, volunteers will not have to incur undue expense due to your emergency.
When making trip plans into the Colorado wilderness, let someone know what your destination is and when you expect to be back. Take adequate supplies and equipment with you. Bring more food and water than the minimum requirements for your trip. Have a map and a compass, proper clothing for the season and terrain, eye protection, sun screen, insect repellent and a personal first aid kit.
We hope you enjoy your adventures in the Colorado Wilderness.
