Lander Search and Rescue Efforts Improve Thanks to New Radios

  • Local Champion: Lander Search and Rescue
  • Date Funded: April 3, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $28,484

Search and rescue volunteers in Lander struggle with a variety of environmental factors—rugged terrain and steep mountains to name just a few—which are compounded by outdated and unreliable communication systems, leading to slow response times when people are injured or lost. To overcome these issues, volunteers often carry multiple radios—some of which are more than 20 years old and no longer meet FCC regulations. To address this problem, Lander Search and Rescue board members hoped to upgrade their radios, but faced a financial hurdle. Funding from the LOR Foundation was used to purchase six new radios which will improve the speed and effectiveness of communication during search and rescue operations as well as local outdoor events.

This project is fiscally sponsored by the Lander Community Foundation
