Fundraising | Snohomish County Search and Rescue Helicopter Rescue Team

***As of April 2013, our HRT program has lost its main source of funding.***

We had been receiving $150,000 annually in federal funding, covering the cost of fuel and maintenance. In April 2013 this funding was eliminated – there are no funds allocated beyond 2014. Without a new funding source, this critical program will simply disappear.

Our day to day operations are not currently threatened but we must take action now to ensure that we are able to continue serving the community without interruption.

Your donations go directly to saving lives. We are a non-profit organization with no salaries to pay, nor overhead costs to negotiate. Your dollars go directly to rescue gear, helicopter maintenance and fuel costs– nothing else.

The vast majority of our team is staffed by volunteers. We train and rehearse so that we can be of assistance when accidents happen beyond the reach of normal emergency services.

Our Pacific Northwest community prides itself on the rugged wilderness so easily accessible just beyond our backdoor. Whether you hike, camp, fish, climb, hunt, ski or mountain bike, accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. Help us maintain a rescue resource that will be ever ready for you.

When no one else can get to you in time, we are your last resort. Donate to support our Team.
