From high seas to sunny days, the waters of Puget Sound can be both beautiful and dangerous. In case an emergency situation arises while you are afloat, North Whidbey Fire and Rescue's - Marine Search and Rescue Team is ready and willing to go the distance. The MSAR team is composed of several specialist firefighters that have gone through intensive training in performing rescue operations in and around the waters of Whidbey Island. With almost 30 miles of shoreline in our response area, the MSAR team's area of operations extends from just off the shores of Ft. Ebey, north around Deception Pass St. Park and back south to Oak Harbor and Penn Cove. Generous cooperation from NAS Whidbey Island and the Washington State Parks provide for launching Marine 25, a 2002 Northwind Extreme Rescue Boat from points closest to the location of an incident. Powered by twin Yamaha 115 outboard motors, Marine 25 can swiftly and safely ply the often tumultuous waters of Puget Sound. NWFR's MSAR Team is also proud to partner with the Island County Sheriff's Office in the cross training of several crewmen to operate the ICSO unit Victor 70 for search and rescue operations.
