The Marysville Unit (MSAR) was formed in the fall of 1959, after a search for a missing hunter. Eventually Alderwood (ASAR), Snohomish (SSAR) and Darrington (DSAR) units were formed within the county and Everett Mountain Rescue Unit (EMRU) had already been established in 1954 for technical type mountain missions.
The five units merged to form Snohomish County Volunteer Search & Rescue under the direction of the Sheriff’s Department and their unit (SCSO) and incorporated August 22 1967.
Since then, two more units have been formed, Operations Support and Explorer SAR.
