MATSAR is a non profit, 501c3 corporation started in 2003 and based in the Matanuska Susitna Valley, in South Central Alaska. It is a group of currently about 30 volunteer members who have the desire to train and work in outdoor environments to help save lives. We operate under and at the behest of the Alaska State Troopers and/or the National Park Service. We train to NASAR standards and currently have the majority of our roster certified as SARTech II. Many members of MATSAR are also involved local Emergency Services.
