CORSAR Card - The Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) card is a means to voluntarily participate in funding the cost of missions, training, and equipment for search and rescue in Colorado. In the event that a card holder is lost or injured in the back country, the county Sheriff can be reimbursed for the costs of a search and rescue mission for that person.

The card costs $ 3.00 for one year or $ 12.00 for five years. Two-thirds of the cost goes to the fund with one-third retained by vendors. If you would like to purchase a COSAR card, they can be obtained from the Archulete County Office of Emergency Management staff at the EOC (777 Piedra Rd) during normal business hours. One-third of the cost of cards purchased from them goes directly to USJSAR.
You may also purchase a COSAR card from the Colorado DOLA website or using this QR code.
