King County Explorer Search and Rescue (KCESAR) recently received a grant from the Snoqualmie Tribe Fund for $5,000 to be used toward a March 2014 goal of raising $200,000, for the replacement of their aging command and communication vehicle. The vehicle is used for communicating to teams in the field, a command post and to transport emergency equipment.
KCESAR is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, made up of youths and adults, which assist the King County Sheriff’s office by searching for lost people in both urban and wilderness settings, rescuing injured hikers, performing nontechnical rescues and looking for crime scene evidence.
