Welcome to ASARA

Alaska Search and Rescue Association (ASARA) is an association of search and rescue organizations and individuals in Alaska. ASARA is a non-profit whose mission is to support search and rescue efforts across the state of Alaska. ASARA accomplishes this through:

1) providing liaison support between Alaska's Department of Public Safety and the volunteer search and rescue community

2) seeking state and national sources of continued funding for search and rescue training opportunities for volunteer personnel

3) allocating grant funds for professional level training to search and rescue organizations and personnel throughout Alaska

From the 2009 Alaska State Troopers Annual Report

"With a commissioned count of less than 400 troopers, AST depends heavily upon the professional volunteer search and rescue organizations, as well as the military and local emergency service agencies. There are roughly 48 volunteer organizations statewide. These volunteers drop what they are doing to answer the call for help that often interrupts regular ­day jobs and family life."

ASARD's mission is to furnish highly trained volunteer teams of dogs and dog handlers for search and rescue work, for the benefit and welfare of the community. ASARD is a statewide volunteer search and rescue (SAR) unit, based in Anchorage. For over 20 years ASARD has assisted the Alaska State Troopers as well as additional federal, state, and local agencies on SAR emergencies. ASARD dog teams respond on average to 25 SAR missions in the greater Anchorage Bowl and around the State of Alaska. ASARD teams have volunteer hundreds of hours each year assisting in search and rescue operations lost and missing persons. ASARD continues to provide qualified search and rescue teams 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and play an important role in Alaska's search and rescue response system. ASARD teams have operational standards in avalanche, wilderness, human remains detection / water search, disaster and tracking.
