Preventative Search and Rescue (PSAR)

West Valley SAR provides wilderness safety education for children and adults through its Preventative Search and Rescue (PSAR) program. The PSAR program includes the internationally recognized Hug-A-Tree and Survive Program, which is designed to teach children ages 5-12 how to keep from getting lost, what to do if they become lost, how to stay warm and dry, and how they can help searchers to find them.

PSAR presentations are available throughout the West Valley area of San Bernardino County and are free of charge. Each presentation typically lasts between 30 minutes and one hour, and includes a question and answer session.

If you would like to schedule a Preventative Search and Rescue presentation for your organization, please e-mail us at westvalleysar@westvalleysar.org.

Please contact us at least a month in advance to ensure that an instructor is available. Evenings and weekends are the best times to schedule presentations.
