Wilderness emergencies seldom follow political boundaries.  Olympic Peninsula trails cross county, state and federal lands. Search and rescue missions in Jefferson County are directed by the Jefferson County Sheriff Office, utilizing Jefferson Search and Rescue (JSAR) and other groups as resources.  JSAR members also routinely assist search and rescue teams in neighboring counties as well as forest rangers on missions and cooperative training exercises.  During searches - or in the event of a disaster - JSAR members contribute their specialized skills in search management, communications, emergency medical care and technical rope rescue.  Any day or night, every day of the year, in any weather.

JSAR also sponsors Explorer Post 1678.  Exploring is affiliated with the Chief Seattle Council of Boy Scouts of America.  Exploring members attend JSAR meetings and trainings and function alongside JSAR members in missions as appropriate.  The Explorer Post provides coeducational opportunities for area young people wishing to serve the community and to develop their own wilderness travel and rescue skills. We meet at 6:00pm prior to the regular JSAR meeting.

JSAR meets at 7:00 pm on the second Wednesday of each month and typically has field trainings the following Saturday.  Anyone interested in membership is encouraged to attend a meeting to learn more about our fun and professional group.  Meetings are held at the beautiful new Chimacum Fire Hall on Highway 19 in Chimacum. Please see our Join JSAR or training pages for more information.
