State Launches Utah Search and Rescue Assistance Card

The Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation, in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Division of Emergency Management, will announce the Utah Search and Rescue Assistance (USARA) card. Live search and rescue demonstrations will be conducted by Rock Exotica, Petzl and the rescue dogs of Wasatch Backcountry Rescue.

Recent numbers show that more than 1,400 people are rescued by search and rescue team efforts each year, costing Utah communities thousands of dollars in equipment, training and personnel. The USARA card helps fund search and rescue efforts and protects outdoor enthusiasts from expensive non-medical search and rescue costs.

Where:
Liberty Park north lawn
900 South 600 East, Salt Lake City

When: Thursday, May 25, 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
