How to Help Us


How to Start a Search

Volunteer Search & Rescue (SAR) organizations like CSAR cannot initiate a search; the authorities call us and we respond.  If believe that you need to initiate a search please contact 911 immediately. If 911 does not work in your area then dial zero (0) and tell the operator you need search and rescue.
