The Colorado Front Range is a beautiful place that can be distracting - causing you to forget about the dangers.

Larimer County Search and Rescue (LCSAR) is the search and rescue(SAR) resource for Larimer County, Colorado. Our mission is to find the lost, rescue the stranded and injured, recover the deceased, and educate the public on wilderness and mountain safety. We average 80 active members and 70 call outs a year. 75% of the calls are searches and the rest are mostly rescues and recoveries.

We operate under the authority of the Larimer County Sheriff, the legally responsible agency for SAR in Larimer County. We provide SAR resources locally, out of county, and out of state when requested through the Larimer County Sheriff's Office.

Our dedication extends to public education where the focus is preventing the types of incidents we are called on, especially those involving children.

Our services are provided free of charge, but we rely heavily on your 501(c)(3) tax-deductible donations.

Thank you for visiting today. Please explore our site to see exactly what we do, how you can help, and how to stay out of trouble.

We take pride on being there when it counts so

that others may live.
