If the (un)official SAR motto...
"... so that others may live
...resonates with you, we'd love to meet you! 

AVSAR meetings occur every fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at the Alamosa County Sheriff's Office, located at 1315 17th St.

AVSAR trainings and missions primarily occur in the Blanca Massif Mountain Group. However, AVSAR often assists many of the San Luis Valley's SAR teams in mutual-aid missions.
