Tacoma Mountain Rescue turns 50

From The News Tribune:

Although the group now has trucks, snowmobiles and other modern equipment, the mission hasn’t changed. About 30 volunteers from around Tacoma, who have jobs ranging from florist to contractor, regularly drop everything and rush to the aid of someone lost in the mountains anywhere in the Northwest.
Tacoma Mountain Rescue is a major partner of Mount Rainier National Park, and its volunteer members typically contribute hundreds of hours of time each year on rescues large and small. Congratulations on the anniversary to all of TMR's members, and a hearty thank you from those of us at Mount Rainier National Park!
