How will the funds be used?

    1.    Increase our helicopter contract from 6 to 7 months covering critical spring months in the Tetons.
    2.    Create a universal short haul team between GTNP and TCSAR for more complete coverage throughout Teton County.
    3.    Train with other agencies (including JHMR, Togwotee Mountain Lodge and Grand Targhee Resort) to ensure on-ground resources are trained effectively to operate around and near the helicopter during a rescue. This creates more efficient and safer rescues for patients and rescuers.  
    4.    Increase the complexity of training to match the challenges of rescues. With increased fundraising we now can train where rescues actually occur, creating confidence in difficult terrain during stressful rescues.
    5.    Fully train 11 volunteers (with an additional 5 ground crew members) to be certified short haulers for our most tactically challenging rescues.  

How can you help?

1. Make a donation. Whether it's $5, $50 or $500... every dollar counts towards our match. 

2. Tell your friends and encourage them to donate.

3. Always be prepared, practiced and present in the in the backcountry. If you don’t know, don’t go.
