Support the Last Resort


We need your help.

Until recently our team had never considered fundraising. A federal grant had covered our yearly fuel, maintenance, and rescue gear costs and all of our efforts went into training so that we could provide our region with the best helicopter rescue resource possible. When the federal grant disappeared, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office stepped in to fund the aircraft fuel and maintenance and Sky Valley Fire District provided all medical supplies. However, we rely on donations and grants to fund all rescue and personal protection equipment such as helmets, vests, and harnesses.
