There are many roles to fill in search and rescue:

 ground team
rope tech
incident command
gear management
and AVSAR's specialized 4x4 team

We also have a team behind the scenes that helps with administrative and financial matters, technology, gear maintenance, and community outreach through Preventative SAR Education (PSAR).

Mountain Safety.

If the unofficial 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 @ 6:00 PM at the Alamosa County Sheriff's Office building just south of Alamosa on Hwy 285.

AVSAR trainings and missions primarily occur in the Blanca Massif Mountain Group; however, AVSAR also assists regional counties in joint SAR missions.
