Technical Rescue Team

When a member of our community needs to be rescued from a trench collapse, a confined space, a building collapse, or rescues that involve specialized rope or water skills, our technical rescue team responds. Gig Harbor’s technical rescue team provides highly trained personnel and equipment to safely work in hazardous environments.

Our team is a member of the Pierce County Special Operations Rescue Team (PCSORT). PCSORT is an association of several Pierce county fire districts that share the cost of purchasing specialized equipment and provide extra personnel for more complicated rescues. The members of PCSORT include Gig Harbor Fire and Medic One, West Pierce Fire and Rescue, Central Pierce Fire and Rescue, and East Pierce Fire and Rescue.
