When a hiker is lost in the backcountry, Search and Rescue (SAR) teams are dispatched to find and rescue them. Flight For Life® Colorado works with many of Colorado's SAR organizations to help shuttle SAR team members into the backcountry. This Lift Ticket Program allows teams to begin searching an area without having to first hike several miles. While doing these shuttles, the helicopter will scan the area from the air to look for signs of the lost party.
The Lift Ticket Program was developed by SAR members, county Sheriff's and Flight For Life® Colorado to safely shuttle in SAR members to help extricate an injured party in the backcountry.
