“Please express my gratitude to all of those people at KCSARA who were involved in rescuing/assisting me at Stevens Pass. The red shirts were a most welcome sight to see.”

“There is not enough thank you’s in the world to say thank you for everything you’ve done and everyone who helped to find our daughter…We are forever grateful.”

“Thank you for rescuing our granddaughter…We appreciate all your time and effort. Our prayers were answered. Bless all of you.”

“I cannot thank you enough for saving my life. I am forever grateful that you found and rescued me…You all were the kindest, most sincere people to have sacrificed your personal time in order to help others. I will never be able to thank you enough…, but I will pay it forward to someone else in their time of need.”

“It’s hard to explain the relief that we felt when we saw the three red jackets, standing on the hill, calling out our names”
