"That Others May Live"

Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue was formed in 1993 by a small group of concerned citizens from the Clackamas County area who saw the need for a well trained volunteer ground search and rescue team.

During the past 23 years, over 400 volunteers from all walks of life have been members of PNWSAR, and have responded to nearly 1000 missions.

PNWSAR is recognized as one of the premier ground search and rescue teams in the region. We seek to constantly improve our training, equipment, and methods so we can better serve our fellow citizens when they are in need.
