Yosemite’s Preventive Search and Rescue (PSAR) program focuses on sharing important safety messages to prevent accidents and injuries in the park.
In 2018, your support enabled the PSAR program to use research results and Search and Rescue statistics to implement outreach targeted to specific high-risk places and situations. PSAR staff, interns and volunteers, including 15 Yosemite Conservancy Work Week volunteers, worked together to educate visitors about staying safe through thousands of one-on-one interactions. Funding also supported the PSAR team’s efforts to create and update communications materials, including webpages, social media post and videos, and to make safety messages on trailside signs more accessible to non-English speakers.
Your contribution supported a pivotal program dedicated to ensuring that visitors can safely enjoy the wonders of Yosemite.
Completed in partnership with Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Hospitality, and Friends of Yosemite Search and Rescue.
