County Sheriff's Office
The Skagit County Volunteer Search and Rescue (SAR) Program provides the county with the presence of highly trained and skilled members to assist in the location and rescue of missing and lost individuals who may be injured or in dangerous conditions and are unable to rescue themselves. Rescues and searches occur from the salt water of Puget Sound to the backcountry of the North Cascade Mountain Range. Established in 1956, it has become an integral and irreplaceable part of the community for the past 52 years. The Skagit County Search and Rescue Program is directed under the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office. 600 S 3rd St, Mount Vernon, WA 98273 Phone: 360-416-1993
Our dedicated and highly skilled volunteers that respond to the call for service include:
Each group has representatives(s) that are members of the Skagit Search and Rescue Council. Established in 1999, the council is a community oriented and volunteer based non-profit organization that seeks to preserve life and health through training, search and rescue techniques and proactive education. Skagit County Search and Rescue Groups can also request funds through the council for training personnel or purchasing needed equipment.
