Search and Rescue

Type: Intermittent group volunteers
Dates: Year-round
Status: Not recruiting beyond existing partnerships

Quick summary: Mount Rainier National Park's initial response to emergencies is with its own employees. However, larger or longer incidents often require help from outside, and in these cases, we call on a wide range of existing partners, including local Search and Rescue teams like Tacoma Mountain Rescue, volunteer search dogs, and Fort Lewis.

For more information: Chief Ranger Chuck Young, 360-569-2211 ext. 3300
To apply: Mount Rainier does not work with individual search and rescue volunteers. If you'd like to help out in the event of emergencies, contact your local Search and Rescue unit and volunteer your services there.
