Our team is driven every day by the belief that better communication in the backcountry will save lives. We also understand that accidents will still happen even with perfect communication. That's why we donate $2 per radio to search and rescue (SAR) teams across the country.
Donations are intended to both support underfunded teams and recognize the extraordinary efforts that first responders make on a regular basis to help those in need. This year we are kicking off two new programs: The Rocky Talkie SAR Award and the SAR Team Grants.
The Rocky Talkie Search and Rescue Award:
This award recognizes 4 select search and rescue teams that went above and beyond during a rescue operation in 2020. There is $10,000 in total prize money, with a top award of $5,000.
SAR Team Grants:
These grants are given to selected SAR teams across the US that lack funding for critical equipment and supplies for operations. Applications open in January each year.
