Yosemite Search and Rescue is one of the busiest wilderness SAR services in the country and averages in excess of two hundred rescue missions every year. As we continue through the busy season and beyond we hope for as few incidents as possible, yet are prepared to provide aid to lost and injured visitors who come to enjoy the grandeur of Yosemite.
Despite strong support from government funding, many aspects of the response program are made possible only through public donation. Proceeds from FOYOSAR’s fundraising efforts are utilized for the benefit of the search and rescue function in Yosemite National Park. Grants made by FOYOSAR cover training, human resources,equipment/infrastructure, visitor/peer education, research/development of more safe and effective rescue methods. No donation is used to directly support rescue operations - the costs associated with missions are covered through Federal Accounts appropriated to the National Park Service.
We appreciate your generosity and wish you a happy, healthy year filled with many safe and memorable adventures in the great outdoors.
