Keep in mind that we are an all volunteer non-profit group of trained individuals with a commitment to service Pima County and our communities to the best of our abilities. As with all non-profits we must raise money to supplement our membership's dues and funding.



Let's Play Golf! — SAMSAR 2016 Charity Golf Tournament

Golf Tournament

It is now time for our 2016 Charity Golf Tournament! For more information or to sign up click here. Join us on May 15, 2016 - 7:30 am Shotgun Start.

Our organization receives no grant money or outside funding. Members use their own financial resources to maintain a qualified team, ready to serve the Tucson community and all of Southern Arizona.

In 2011 SAMSAR sponsored its First Annual Charity Golf Tournament at the Club at Vistoso. Proceeds from this event and others are dedicated to funding vital equipment purchases, ongoing field training, advanced medical training and practical certifications for all SAMSAR members.

Organizations from all over Arizona and the country, donated goods and services for SAMSAR to auction off at the event. Others sponsored Tee Boxes as their way of contributing. Golf was played and fun was had by all — except, perhaps, the somewhat nervous wildlife.

Donations Are Vital

SAMSAR is a group of volunteers dedicated to serving our much loved community .  All our equipment, training, continuing education is paid for ourselves via dues, community outreaches (i.e. fundraisers) and donations.  

We are involved in searches for those who have become lost, whether by lack of direction or inability to solve a problem (i.e. dementia, Alzheimer’s, altered mental abilities) and to get them home safely.  Many times those who have become confused and lost are also either ill or injured, so we assist other search and rescue groups  in bringing necessary medical  equipment and expertise as well as transport equipment to the scene.   As you can all imagine, this can be a very expensive commitment.

Please consider us for a donation—even a small amount helps.  Remember it could be you or your family member at risk someday—and because we care about you we will respond whenever and however it is possible!!  Thank you for your support!
