The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security serves as the account manager and operates using guidance from W.S. 19, Chapter 13, Article 3 and the Wyoming Search and Rescue Council (SAR). Council members are appointed by the governor. By statute the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS) director serves as executive secretary to the council.

Search and Rescue is defined as the employment, coordination and utilization of available resources and personnel in relieving distress, preserving life and removing survivors from the site of a disaster, emergency or hazard to safety in case of lost, stranded, entrapped or injured people.

The goal of the Wyoming Search and Rescue Council is to assist Wyoming sheriffs, who are charged by state statute to conduct SAR operations, with the execution of this mandate by fostering quality search and rescue resources throughout the state and providing reimbursement for eligible expenditures.
