Why Buy a CORSAR Card?
Colorado residents and visitors are well served by dedicated volunteer search and rescue teams, but mission costs are often in the thousands of dollars. By purchasing a CORSAR card you are contributing to the Search and Rescue Fund, which will reimburse these teams for costs incurred in your search and rescue. Funds remaining at the end of the year are used to help pay for training and equipment for these teams. Anyone who purchases a current hunting/fishing license, or boat, snowmobile, ATV registration already contributes to the fund.


The CORSAR Card Is Not Insurance
The card is not insurance and does not reimburse individuals nor does it pay for medical transport.  It reiburses sheriffs for eligible costs involved in the discharge of a SAR mission.


Purchase a Card
The CORSAR card is available for $3 for a one-year and $12 for five-year card and can be purchased at over 300 retailers in the state. You may also purchase a card on-line. Please visit one of these links:

For the cost of the card, you have helped ensure that trained and well equipped search and rescue teams have the necessary skills to respond should you become lost or in need of rescue. Furthermore, volunteers will not have to incur undue expenses due to your emergency.
