The Virginia Airborne Search & Rescue Squad is the Commonwealth of Virginia's only rescue squad that operates a helicopter. We are on standby 24 hours a day for missions that support Project Lifesaver, the US Coast Guard, local jurisdictions and citizens. We have located and assisted in the location of lost children, alzheimers patients, patients with autism and many more.
Our operating budget comes entirely through your donations. VASARS is a 501(c)(3) public charity, so your donations are 100% tax deductible. Not a dime of taxpayer money is used to fund VASARS.
