The Ground SAR, or Ground Search and Rescue unit, is the core of our volunteers. Ground SAR is an adult group that usually does the hiking to and evacuation of subjects.
Sometimes the subject is mobile and Ground SAR escorts them to the trail head. But many times the subject must be transported by litter. These highly trained, physically fit Ground SAR hikers work in all our Wenatchee-area conditions. They work in extreme heat, snow, mountains and urban searches.
These skilled searchers are also utilized during wildfires to provide evacuations, natural and man-made disasters, and assisting law enforcement with evidence searches.
We’re always looking for more volunteers who love the outdoors, and have a real desire to help others in their time of need.
