From Hiking Colorado's Facebook page:
If you Hike a lot like I do, I recommend that you purchase a Search and Rescue Card when hiking in the mountains. If you get lost or injured, the Search and Rescue teams in that respective area will come out and find you usually for no charge. It does not cover the cost of medical charges or transportation (helicopter or ambulance). If you have a Colorado fishing or hunting license then you are covered and don't need the CORSAR card. They can be purchased at Colorado Parks and Wildlife or on the attached link. A one year CORSAR card cost $3 and a five year cost $12. You can't beat that cost. Support our Search and Rescue teams.

Colorado Search and Rescue Fund
Every year thousands of people are lost or injured in Colorado's vast back country. Many are rescued by dedicated un-paid professional search and rescue personnel operating under the direction of Colorado's County Sheriffs. Even though un-paid SAR personnel are used to search for and rescue people, the County Sheriff still incurs a cost for the SAR mission. Unfortunately, local budgets are often inadequate to cover the burden of search and rescue as more visitors seek the enjoyment and solitude of back country recreation.

In 1987, the Colorado State legislature established a Search And Rescue Fund to assist any agency or political subdivision of the State of Colorado for costs incurred in search and rescue activities involving persons holding hunting or fishing licenses, vessel, snowmobile, or off-highway vehicle registrations, or a Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) card pursuant to section 33-1-112.5. of the Colorado Revised Statutes. Moneys for the fund is provided by a 25 cent surcharge on hunting and fishing licenses, vessel, snowmobile, and off-highway vehicle registrations as well as 2/3 of the cost of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) card.

The first priority of the fund is to reimburse local Sheriffs for the costs incurred while conducting a search and rescue for a licensed person.

The Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) card is a means to voluntarily participate in funding the cost of missions, training, and equipment for search and rescue in Colorado. In the event that a card holder is lost or injured in the back country, the county Sheriff can be reimbursed for the costs of a search and rescue mission for that person.

The CORSAR card costs $ 3.00 for one year or $ 12.00 for five years.

The Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) card can be purchased from your local outdoor store or online from the Department of Local Affairs at CORSAR Card Online Purchase
