Sheriff Information

The highest priority of the Search and Rescue Fund is to reimburse county sheriffs for mission costs incurred in rescues of persons having paid into the fund through surcharges on hunting and fishing licenses, registrations of boats, off-highway vehicles, Habitat stamps, and snowmobiles, and the voluntary purchase of Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) cards. If funds remain after all missions for these "licensed" persons have been reimbursed, the fund pays for missions for relatives of licensed persons. A third tier of funding is available at the end of the year for costly missions for unlicensed individuals.
