Welcome to Garfield County Search and Rescue

What is Garfield County Search And Rescue

Garfield County Search and Rescue (GCSAR) is the search and rescue resource for Garfield County, Colorado. Our mission is to find the lost, rescue the stranded and injured, recover the deceased, and educate the public on wilderness and mountain safety. We operate under the authority of the Garfield County Sheriff, the legally responsible agency for search and rescue (SAR) in Garfield County. We provide SAR resources locally, out of county, and out of state when requested through the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office.

Our dedication extends to public education where the focus is preventing the types of incidents we are called on, especially those involving children.

Our services are provided free of charge, but we rely heavily on your 501(c)(3) tax-deductible donations.

Thank you for visiting today. Please explore our site to see exactly what we do, how you can help, and how to stay out of trouble.
