Welcome to ASARA

Alaska Search and Rescue Association (ASARA) is an association of search and rescue organizations and individuals in Alaska. ASARA is a non-profit whose mission is to support search and rescue efforts across the state of Alaska. ASARA accomplishes this through:

1) providing liaison support between Alaska's Department of Public Safety and the volunteer search and rescue community

2) seeking state and national sources of continued funding for search and rescue training opportunities for volunteer personnel

3) allocating grant funds for professional level training to search and rescue organizations and personnel throughout Alaska

From the 2009 Alaska State Troopers Annual Report

"With a commissioned count of less than 400 troopers, AST depends heavily upon the professional volunteer search and rescue organizations, as well as the military and local emergency service agencies. There are roughly 48 volunteer organizations statewide. These volunteers drop what they are doing to answer the call for help that often interrupts regular ­day jobs and family life."
