Pecos Valley Public Services is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) locally based organization of the community. We are a State recognized Search&Rescue (SAR) organization.
More About Search And Rescue
SAR missions in New Mexico occur on average every 36 hours. Missions include overdue aircraft, lost hunters, lost children, drowning accidents, missing climbers, hikers, skiers, fishermen, and other users of our great New Mexico outdoors. Our community, Chaves and neighboring counties, are our primary responsibility – but we are also responding to calls if our assistance is required in other parts of the State. When the call comes – we’re ready to head out; into the mountains, or the desert, in a snow storm or in scorching heat. We go where nobody else goes.
We also respond to crisis, emergencies or disasters within our community and neighboring counties.
The only financial support provided by the State is to reimburse members for the fuel used on official SAR missions. We do not receive any other form of funding from any other governmental organization.
Let me explain why your help is so important. While working with a local community support organization, we were tasked to monitor the cities parks and undeveloped areas for homeless folks in distress during the recent cold spell. This was difficult because we don’t have any night vision or FLIR equipment. A drone providing thermal imaging is about $6,500 – which is out of range for us.
We are asking the community to help us. Every cent of your donation is used to purchase equipment strictly necessary for our job.
All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Additional Benefits For Your Donation
A donation of $500 gives you a prominent advertising spot on our web-site (30 days) and an entry on our Facebook page. Please send image/logo and web- or Facebook address to link to.
A donation of $1,000 gives you a prominent advertising spot on our web-site (30 days) and an entry on our Facebook page. Please send image/logo and web- or Facebook address to link to. Additionally we will create a two minute drone video of any location of your choice by a professional certified pilot (certain conditions apply).
