Yosemite’s Preventive Search and Rescue (PSAR) program focuses on sharing important safety messages in order to prevent accidents and injuries in the park.
In 2018, your support will enable the PSAR program to use recent research results and Search and Rescue statistics to implement outreach targeted to specific high-risk places and situations. A seasonal PSAR ranger, interns and volunteers will work together to educate visitors about staying safe through one-on-one interactions; presentations in the park and local communities; regularly updated signs about specific hazards, such as slippery surfaces near waterfalls; and GPS-triggered audio messages on hiker shuttle buses. Funding will also support efforts to expand the PSAR presence at High Sierra Camps, as well as social media outreach to share information with people before and during their visits.
Your contribution will ensure visitors can safely enjoy the wonders of Yosemite.
Partnering with Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Hospitality, and Friends of Yosemite Search and Rescue.
