SR3 is founded in memory of our friend, Dave VanBuskirk (call sign SR3).
On the evening of July 22, 2013, we lost a hero. Our good friend and co-worker Dave VanBuskirk fell during a helicopter rescue operation at Mt. Charleston while saving a man’s life. To say his death was a tragic loss to his family, friends, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the community would be an understatement. It is difficult to put into words what a remarkable human being he was. For anyone that never had the pleasure of knowing him, we have tried to do just that.
