Alderwood Unit


Welcome to the Alderwood Unit!


The Alderwood Unit (ASAR) and its members respond to all county call-outs and also serve as members of our Special Operations Group (SOG). The SOG is composed of several teams: 4×4 Team, Helicopter Rescue Team (HRT), K9 Team, Man Tracking Team (MTT), Mountain Bike Team (MBT), Equine Response Team and the Swiftwater Rescue Team(SRT). These teams provide highly specialized skills and technical rescue capabilities to Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, and the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management. We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
