Description: The primary goal of this grant is to improve the State's volunteer search and rescue operations. This will be done by establishing the Alaska Search and Rescue Association (ASARA), a non-profit statewide organization that will service the needs of "professional volunteer searchers" in Alaska. Once established, ASARA will become a Licensed Organization through recognition from the National Association for Search and Rescue (NASAR). At present, the State search and rescue volunteers lack consistent training and the proper safety equipment to operate in the hazardous conditions that they often find themselves in. The new State organization will increase the number of NASAR-trained instructors and provide NASAR-approved training to up to 900 volunteer searchers statewide.
