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."

Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol
www.nordicskipatrol.com

The Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol (ANSP) is a non-profit organization of volunteers originally formed in 1972 by a few members from the nordic ski club who also were members of the Denali Ski Patrol. In 1976 the ANSP officially became a member of the National Ski Patrol. 30 years later, the 50 person roster is strong and full of both old and new faces. The training criteria and opportunities are extensive to be a National Ski Patroller affiliated with ANSP. Outdoor emergency care, mountaineering, avalanche, winter camping and CPR are some of the core class criteria. The primary mission of ANSP is to patrol local nordic trails, Chugach State Park, Hatchers Pass State Park, ski trains, Tour of Anchorage, and many others mountain ski tours and local ski races. We also support the community and participate in search and rescue missions primarily in Southcentral Alaska.
