The Park County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue (PCSAR) is actively seeking donations to replace its oldest emergency response vehicle. PCSAR is an all-volunteer organization that operates on a limited budget. While the organization receives modest funding from the county, these funds are primarily used for maintenance and general operating expenses and in no way covers much needed equipment, especially major expenditures.

The vehicle we are looking to replace was a 16-year-old 2001 Ford Expedition (pictured above which has since been sold at auction) which rapidly became a maintenance problem. It was one of four vehicles used by PCSAR, none of which is newer than 11 years old. In fact, none of our current vehicles are powerful enough to tow all of our resources safely. This is especially true of our mobile command post which must be deployed/towed using personal vehicles or a truck from County Buildings and Grounds. This severely hampers our ability to swiftly respond to calls for service.

Therefore, PCSAR is asking for your help. We are looking to raise sufficient funds to purchase a new one-ton diesel pickup truck with sufficient power to accommodate our emergency response. If you would like to help, please go to the "Search & Rescue" tab above and click on the "How to Help/Donate" link.

Recently the Park County Search and Rescue Unit trained on the use of its amphibious Argo tracked vehicle. The Argo is an 8x8 amphibious all-wheel drive off road vehicle. It is designed to go where traditional ATV’s cannot and is amphibious for floatation / water crossings. It is powered by a 4 cycle OHV V-Twin gasoline EFI engine, electronic ignition, and air cooled engine. It has a load capacity of up to 910 lb. on land or 810 lb. on water, can transport 6 passengers on land, 4 on water and features a towing capacity of 1,400 lb. It is also equipped with a stretcher bracket for patient extraction.  It is an essential first response vehicle that goes where no other can.
