If you're in Colorado, just buy the Search & Rescue permit. If you need to be evacuated by any means, not just a helicopter, it's all covered. I think its $15 for 5 years or something stupidly cheap.

Thanks for the bump. Should remember each year.

Hey Tim ,THANKS for bringing this up again. It is a great idea for everyone and very cheap insurance for you and your families. I have seen bills as high as 35k.

Goes

Just thought I would post up another option for SAR/Extraction. GOES is worldwide and seems a bit cheaper than the above options. YMMV. I happen to have a "SPOT" satellite messenger that I can use to summon help so for me, a one year plan is $14 and covers up to $100,000 worth of expenses. They also offer a MediVac service that will transport you from your point of injury to the hospital of your choice with up to $1,000,000 in coverage. Check the site out and see if it fits.

Here is the link: http://www.geosalliance.com/index.html

Haven't seen it mentioned in the thread thus far, so I thought I'd bring up other Calstar points worth considering.

This insurance also covers medivac form hospital to hospital. Your case gets too complicated for the local hospital, your flight to the regional is covered. Coworker just had his 2 year old flighted to Renown from Carson with RSV, I hope he has coverage. Wife's coworker and newborn flighted from Tahoe to Renown, complications during birth $38K.

Calstar isn't just for offroad mishaps, your also covered if you have an accident on the highway.

Pulled a guy and his quad off of Strawberry Canyon couple of years back with a back injury. He looked like he endured a lot of pain to avoid the cost of Calstar. $45 is painless.

For So Cal most services are provided by either the fire dept. or sheriff's dept. I know a air ambulance ride provided by the Los Angeles City Fire Dept or the Los Angeles County Fire or Sheriff Dept will cost a fraction of what the Life Flight cost would be. I believe LAFD charges a flat fee of right around $500 bucks and I think the Sheriff's are about the same. San Bernadino County I think is covered by Life Flight so a having insurance with them might be beneficial if you do a lot of high risk activities in that area. LA County Fire covers a huge area from Gorman, Malibu, Antelope Valley down to close to the 15. Anywhere in the at area a helicoper evac should not be too expensive and you wouldnt be able to get the insurance from them anyway.[/QUOTE

Just speaking for Los Angeles County Fire, there is no charge for the use of the helicopter to be transported to area hospitals/trauma ctr... There is no charge either for the use of the Lasd Air 5 (which flies with SWAT trained personnel and a Dr.) I'm not to familiar if Los Angeles City fire charges, but for surrounding counties ( Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, and Kern) they contract with agencies such as Life Flight, or Mercy Air for air ambulance needs.

For the Reno/Carson area guys, http://www.care-flight.com/index.html (REMSA) is our local provider. They have reciprocal agreements with both CalStar and Enloe (among others), $55/year. Pretty good deal in my book. REMSA covers most of northern and central nevada, and can fill up to go further if need be.

Great thread!

Great thread!

Just to point out what I thought was obvious......if REMSA has an agreement with CalStar, there's no reason to pay $55. Through being a member of FOTR, you only have to pay CalStar $35 a year for your entire household, and it is good for what ever agreements are in place.

Save $20....

BTW, thanks, Ken, for connecting the dots on this and getting the CalStar representative to come to the FOTR meeting earlier this year. That moved me off my intends-well-but-didn't-complete-the-form position and got me to actually register. Now I just need something that runs that I can put the CalStar sticker on! (other than my dirt bike).

The recent accident on Cadillac Hill puts this back into focus.

PLEASE...$35 a year. Put FOTR in the group. It could be you....

Dennis Mayer was the HAM guy.....I'll be the CALSTAR guy.....GET IT.

I believe the prices have changed a bit.

For an annual fee of $45 per individual or $50 per family,

Would you mind elaborating a bit on using the FOTR Group? I'm guessing your saying to use the "Group Membership" application? I wouldn't want to do this incorrectly.

Thanks!

Just today my wife asked a fellow Wheeler if he had Calstars, and he said he keeps putting to off. My wife does not wheel, so her response was great "I am happy Steve has it, and hope he never needs it, but knowing he has it, and a ham radio, gives me peace of mind when he goes wheeling"

So, I salute both Dennis, and Ken! Ham and Calstars is a great combo!

Yes. Use the Group Membership. Choose the $35 for Group Members 15+ (we have WAY more than 15).

It will be $35, not $45 for the family. Do it online...add all the members in your household and HOPE you never need it, but be grateful if you do.

I am going to sign up too. My family has had to use Calstar in the past, and I was not a member.

Twelve years ago, my son accidentally ran over my 9 year old daughter at the North Shore campground. Made a stop for the ladies to use the restroom before we hit the trail. As my daughter was climbing out of the back seat out onto the rear tire, she fell as my son was driving by. We did not have a ham, and cell phone coverage back then was super lame. Luckily after bouncing rock to rock with another campers mobile phone, we got a call out. Calstar flew them my wife and daughter to UCD.

That flight costs $11k plus. So, I won a ham last year at the Cantina and never collected it. I am going to get licensed, get a radio, and get the membership with Calstar.
