MAT+SAR is a non-profit Search & Rescue organization stationed in Palmer Alaska. Our volunteers specialize in backcountry wilderness search and rescue. MAT+SAR has approximately thirty members with a diverse background ranging from military, firefighters, EMT’s, paramedics, water rescue specialists and ski patrol to name a few.
MAT+SAR has been called to help find lost hikers, hunters, campers, and overdue snowmachiners / ATV riders. MAT+SAR’s primary response area is the Mat-Su valley but will easily be available for missions out side this core area. MAT+SAR meets the second Wednesday of every month at the MTA building in Palmer at 7:00 pm. Any interested persons are encouraged to attend.
