Search and Rescue

Mineral County Search & Rescue (SAR) is made up of dedicated, trained professionals, providing response teams to persons in distress or imminent danger. We are committed to excellence through education and exercising our skills. We actively train and strive for continues improvement in coordination and communications among our response teams for our community.

Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search & Rescue Card

If you plan on traveling in the back country and are not a licensed hunter or fisherman, you can use the Quick Response (QR) Code above and purchase your card online or if you please, drop by the Mineral County Sheriff's Office and pick up a CORSAR card.

$3.00 for one year
$12.00 for five years

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