Mission Statement

King County Explorer Search & Rescue is dedicated to saving lives through search and rescue activities in King County and Washington State and to providing continuous wilderness and leadership training for our youth and adult members.

Description

King County Explorer Search & Rescue (ESAR) is the largest of nine units in the King County Search and Rescue Association. The 100% volunteer organization was founded in 1954 as the first youth based search and rescue team in the nation. ESAR is the county's primary ground search and non-technical rescue unit, and responds to over 60 missions a year in both King County and around Washington State.

All field qualified ESAR members have been trained in rigorous wilderness navigation, map and compass, outdoor survival, evidence search and mountain first aid skills. In addition to providing a team for basic ground search and rescue, ESAR also maintains an advanced technical rescue team, a mountain bike search team, and a group of county and state certified Emergency Medical Technicians.

ESAR is highly committed to its youth and adult members but also welcomes adult members to fill various non-field support roles such communications and van driver.
