Hello project supporters!

We have revised our our project "Help Our Rescue Team Deploy to Disaster" by creating a new project called "Adopt a Rescuer". 

We at EMPACT Northwest have been fortunate to enlist the support of a professional marketing firm in our area. These changes are part of a broader plan as we move forward into the future. Please visit our new project right here on Global Giving, and our offical project "roll out" at our first annual fundraising gala this November at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, WA!

Please visit us at our webpage EMPACTnorthwest.org and follow us on Facebook for DAILY updates on our missions and initiatives. 

Thank you for your continued support as we learn and grow into the future!

Nepal Rescue Mission
Nepal Rescue Mission

EMPACT’s Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Task Force is an all-volunteer, non-governmental team that provides specialized rescue and emergency medical services after disasters. This can include locating, extricating, and providing short-term emergency medical treatment to victims who have been stranded, trapped in collapsed structures, or otherwise affected by disaster.  The USAR Task Force provides a nucleus of highly trained special rescue and medical response personnel, working cooperatively with other entities to bring these services to those most in need.

The following is the Operational Update for the Second Trimester 2015:

Training has been completed for 6 team members to at least the operations level, with two at the rescue specialist level and has included ongoing training for all personnel in advanced rescue techniques. Incident Management System has been developed and implemented with training ongoing. Communications & command systems are currently being developed. A four-person assessment team was deployed to Nepal as part of the UN response to the earthquake there.

Financial Summary
