AVALANCHE EDUCATION SAFETY BOOK, E-BOOK AND VIDEO SIERRA AVALANCHE CENTER $16,060 Because of the increase in snowmobile-related avalanche fatalities and the lack of access to snowmobile-specific avalanche education, SAC has prioritized outreach and education with motorized users over the past five years. We developed and administered a series of (free) introductory avalanche education classes designed specifically for snowmobilers, including two classes funded by Nevada’s OHV Program. However, our classes are generally limited to the greater Lake Tahoe area, making access difficult for many snowmobilers in eastern and southern Nevada. (The Center heard from the Commission last year, the desire to expand the avalanche education to other parts of the state) So with your support, we propose the creation and publication of a motorized specific avalanche safety book, e-book, and video, for distribution throughout Nevada, to help fill this gap and provide critical avalanche safety information to riders across the state.

PROJECT POLARIS DOUGLAS COUNTY SEARCH AND RESCUE $29,142.22 The grant request is for the purchase of a second tracked UTV for Search and Rescue Efforts. During the course of the past year DC-SAR has been involved in many rescues involving off-road vehicles. Several of these have been mutual-aid calls in other counties in Nevada and California. We normally do not send individual rescuers out on their own, we always send them as a team. Likewise, when sending vehicles out into the back country we try to send them in pairs. This is in the event one vehicle breaks down or has an accident. Not having a second tracked UTV means that we must break that policy to get to people that need to be rescued. As detailed in this proposal, it is our intent to utilize this vehicle to assist us in serving the citizens of Douglas County, along with the numerous visitors to our region. It will be our responsibility to purchase required accessories to make this unit serviceable. These include a trailer to transport the UTV, equipping it with emergency lighting, and applying decals identifying it as belonging to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department. Download
