For the Colorado Search and Rescue site:

“Dedicated VOLUNTEER search and rescue (SAR) professionals, across Colorado, are ready to mobilize to help those in the Colorado backcountry. Your Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) contribution supplies reimbursements to SAR teams for costs incurred while conducting search and rescue operations, and to provide funding for the purchase of search and rescue related equipment. Because of your support and the tremendous generosity of our search and rescue responders, Colorado is a safer place to play.

Here’s how the reimbursement works…..  After a SAR mission concludes, the County in which the mission was conducted sends a request for reimbursement. If the subject of the mission has a CORSAR card or eligible Parks and Wildlife license or registration, a reimbursement payment is processed immediately.  If the subject of the search does not have a CORSAR Card or eligible Parks and Wildlife license or registration, the request for reimbursement is held until the end of the year. If money is available in the fund at the end of the year, the requesting county receives reimbursement.

*The CORSAR card is not insurance and does not reimburse individuals or pay for medical transport.”
