Everett Mountain Rescue (EMR) is an all-volunteer organization of climbers and first responders dedicated to saving lives through search and rescue and mountain safety. We are a fully-accredited member of the Mountain Rescue Association and provide all-season technical rescue services in the rugged mountain terrain of Snohomish County and throughout Washington State.
Formed in 1954 when a group of Mountaineers hastily organized a rescue effort to reach a group of friends stranded on Mt. Stickney in inclement weather, EMR is one of the original rescue organizations from which the Mountain Rescue Association ultimately arose.
EMR operates under the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office as part of the broader Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue organization. Partnering in delivering services for both technical and non-technical search and rescue missions.
We are a charitable non-profit IRS 501(c)(3) corporation made up of volunteer seasoned alpinists and rely solely on donations to help purchase equipment such as rescue vehicles, technical climbing gear and other hardware and equipment.
