Who We Are
Tonto Rim Search and Rescue (TRSAR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation made up of more than 60 volunteer members dedicated to saving lives and assisting people in need. Supported only by donations and fundraisers, TRSAR has been serving the Rim Country community for over 50 years.
Our general Membership Meeting is held once a month on the 2nd Thursday of the month. We meet at the Payson Public Library—328 N McLane Rd, Payson AZ—at 7:00 PM. Join us and bring a friend.
How to Engage Our Service
If you have an emergency, call 911 or contact your local law enforcement office and ask the County Sheriff to dispatch TRSAR.
Under Arizona law, search and rescue groups can only respond to an emergency by authorization of the County Sheriff’s Office. Therefore, it is important that you do not call TRSAR directly, thus causing a delay in response time.
To Dispatch TRSAR,
What We Do
