Our Technical Rescue Team is made up of firefighters trained with advanced specialty rescue training. Martha Lake Fire Station 21 is home to the team and TR21, a specialized truck stocked with equipment and tools to support the mission of the team. Team members are on duty at the station 24/7.

We are also part of the Snohomish County Technical Rescue Team, which provides regional response through nine participating jurisdictions. Combining resources into a single regional team allows pooling of resources and sharing of equipment to respond efficiently and effectively.

Members of the technical rescue team have specialized training for:

  • Collapsed buildings
  • Urban search and rescue
  • Trench cave-ins
  • Confined-space rescues
  • Ice and surface water rescues
  • High- and low-angle rope rescue systems
