How to Help Us


Need Help?

Volunteer Search & Rescue (SAR) organizations like CSAR cannot initiate a search; the authorities call us and we respond.  If you believe that you need help 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.
