I am administer the Emergency Worker Program for Thurston County, and the South Puget Sound Mobile Search and Rescue (SPSMSAR) group is registered with us.
SPSMSAR goes above and beyond what is expected of them. They respond for lost or missing individuals, but also are the first to offer assistance during disasters, regardless of the type of work they'll be doing. They are invaluable!
I always say, "if you're going to get list somewhere, do it in Thurston County because our search and rescue teams are the best!" The citizens of Thurston, and neighboring counties, are very fortunate to have this group as a SAR resource.

Volunteer Search and Rescue (SAR) teams, such as South Puget Sound Mobil SAR are the often; unsung, unknown community heroes. As volunteers they are not paid; indeed, they regularly expend their own money on annual training and equipment…such as their ATV’s, radios and navigational equipment. No matter the time of day or night, they respond. I commend this Search and Rescue unit on many levels, but most of all on their cohesiveness as a team. They truly exemplify the fact that there is no “I” in team.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This organization actively moves forward with processes of improvement; therefore I have no suggestions for areas they are not already exploring.

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Very Well
