Project Report | Mar 8, 2018
On up we go!

By Jake Gillanders | Executive Director

What an exciting year!  In the past 3 months we've successfully:

 

  • Trained 22 new members in Rope Rescue and Structural Collapse Rescue;
  • Brought personal and community preparedness training to dozens of citizens of the PNW region;
  • Fostered working relationships with rescue partners throughout the United States and the world

 

In the coming months, we'll be continuing our push for disaster preparedness and rescuer training:

  • In April, our rescue command staff will be travelling to Louisiana to assist our rescue partners in preparing for the 2018 hurricane season;
  • In May, we'll be graduating our second class of 22 highly trained direct rescue and medical providers in the PNW region;
  • In June, we'll be training 14 local firefighters in technical rescue skills that would be essential after a major earthquake.

All of this is possible because of your contributions! We couldn't be more grateful.  Thank you for your ongoing support!
