Lander Search & Rescue Capital Campaign

Lander SAR is the Lander unit of Fremont County Search & Rescue, a volunteer arm of the Fremont County Sheriff’s Department. We have 40 active members who keep our team organized and are on-call 24/7. We had a record number of calls in 2020 and expect the same in 2021, because more people are recreating outdoors more frequently during the pandemic. We would like to obtain a vehicle and get it ready before June 2021, and hope to finance half the cost via our 2021 Capital Campaign to get it in service before we pay it off.

A quick response vehicle can help us launch an initial team to get to critical incidents sooner. We consulted the Windriver 4x4 Club and the Facebook forum for SAR Professionals and decided that we need a used Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited, year 2012 or newer, with a lift kit, 35” tires, automatic transmission, winch, lights, navigation system, recovery kit, and radios. We can buy one and fix it up for about $35,000-$40,000. 

Sponsor recognition: We appreciate everyone who can contribute any amount to this campaign and help us respond faster in the months and years to come!

Major donors ($500-$999) have the opportunity to have their name and/or logo put on the two vehicle wraps we will have made for the rear side windows. We can issue a press release recognizing your community support. Folks or businesses who donate $1000 or more can have a larger logo on the vehicle wrap, similar to what NASCAR does. If you're donating a large amount and are interested in having your name or logo on our vehicle, please contact us via our Facebook page . We will take the final list of names and logos and let a graphic artist lay them out, with larger name size for larger gifts.

Donations are tax deductible since Lander SAR is a Tax Exempt Government Entity. If you want to deduct your donation, let us know and we will get you a receipt.
