Badlands Search and Rescue (Badlands SAR) is a vital service that helps locate and rescue people who have become lost or injured in the rugged terrain of the Badlands, on our waterways, or anywhere that they may be in distress. The team is comprised of volunteers who require specialized equipment, training, and resources to carry out their missions effectively. Donations from individuals and organizations play a crucial role in helping the SAR team to continue providing their valuable services to the community.

One of the most significant expenses for the team is the cost of specialized equipment. The team requires a range of gear, including GPS devices, ropes, harnesses, medical supplies, and other equipment, to safely and effectively carry out their missions. Donations can help the to purchase and maintain this equipment, ensuring that we are always ready to respond to search emergencies in North Dakota and Montana.

In addition to equipment, our members are required to take extensive training to carry out their duties safely. Donations help provide funding for training programs and certifications that are necessary for team members to carry out their duties. This includes wilderness survival training, first aid courses, technical rescue training, and other specialized programs. With the support of donations, we can ensure that their members are always prepared to handle any situation they may encounter.

Finally, donations can help the maintain our operations and keep our resources up to date. This includes the cost of maintaining vehicles, communication equipment, computer programs, and other critical resources. With the help of donors, we can continue to serve their community effectively, ensuring that those who become lost, missing, or injured in North Dakota and eastern Montana can be located and rescued in a timely and safe manner.

Please consider donating to our team so that we may continue to be a resource across the region.


Thank you,

The members of Badlands SAR
