TMR – the Pioneering Advanced Life Support Mountain Rescue Unit

The work of Dr Ben Constance has meant TMR is now a classified ALS provider. Bringing full scope medical care to our patients in high angle and technical terrain in the Washington wilderness. We have 4 emergency physicians and paramedics working with TMRU, and another with Olympic Mountain Rescue. The goal is to have a network of wilderness trained physicians along the west coast of WA that can also provide mutual aid and improve our advanced medical coverage for all our missions. For more information and to sponsor this groundbreaking program visit

Tacoma Mountain Rescue is a Charity.

Because TMR is a 100% volunteer 503(c) charity with 0% admin costs we need just $20,000 per year to operate; providing search, rescue & recovery from Mt Adams, Mt Rainier to Mt Baker and mountain safety education throughout Washington State.

But to keep Tacoma Mountain Rescue running we do need $20,000 – so we need you!  Please donate online today or contact us about business sponsorship.  On behalf of the next lives saved – thank you!

Target: $20,000 per year! 17.5% Raised so far. Please donate today!
