TMR – the Pioneering Advanced Life Support Mountain Rescue Unit

TMR is 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 www.mountainmedicine.us.

Tacoma Mountain Rescue is a Volunteer Charity.

Because TMR is a 100% volunteer 501(c)(3) charity with 0% admin costs we need just $20,000 per year to operate; providing search, rescue & recovery from Mt Adams to Mt Baker and mountain safety education throughout Washington State.

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

The Puyallup Tribe of Indians

An amazing group responsible for much of our life-saving equipment, search vehicles, gear, and operational funding.

The Ben Cheney Foundation

A long time supporter of Tacoma Mountain Rescue, the foundation has provided funds for both of our Rescue trucks.

Puget Sound Energy

These guys do more than deliver gas and electricity, their assistance in getting a second truck allows us to deliver people to where we are needed.

Boeing

Thanks to Boeing for their kind donations and support of Tacoma Mountain Rescue.

Outdoor Research

Thanks to Seattle based Outdoor Research for the great gear and great discounts you give TMR unit members.

Thanks to Wet Coast Brewing Company who support TMR through events held at their wonderful Gig Harbor tasting rooms.

You ...

As a charity, every year we struggle for funds for all the gear and stuff that keeps us ready to get to you on the mountain when you need us.

TMR out again on Sunday night / Monday morning.  This time in the Olympics for a hiker with a broken leg on the summit of Mt Ellinor (~6,000ft). With Olympic Mountain Rescue already stretched by another mission in Jefferson, members from Tacoma Mountain Rescue Unit were happy to come in as back up. Working alongside Mason County Sheriff and the Mason County Special Operations Rescue Team. Special thanks to our friends at NAS Whidbey Island SAR for a nighttime hoist that saved us from a difficult and dangerous litter carry!

I heard the dispatch when the helo landed at Sanderson. I thought wow, they went up there at night to pick up this hiker. Would have been a very difficult litter carry.
