Prepare for family adventures this summer with a Preventative Search and Rescue (P-SAR) program hosted by team BUSAR! This family friendly event will include demos to help increase backcountry safety.

Saturday, June 9 from 1:30pm – 2:30pm on the Three Rivers Market patio

BUSAR will teach children what to do when lost, offer first aid demos, and share info on basic survival skills and tips for safely enjoying the outdoors. Their search dog, Kato, will be there as well.The event is open to everyone; so join some of the team members as we have fun while learning lifesaving skills.
