Local search and rescue crews have finished their deployment to the state Route 530 landslide near Oso, Pierce County said Wednesday.
The county-based Urban Search and Rescue team deployed for 27 days, a record for the group. Most teams deploy for 14 days, Pierce County said.
Those sent were primarily from Pierce and King counties. They had emergency medical skills, training in operations, planning, logistics, search and rescue, technical information, structural engineering, canine search, and communications.
An 80-member rotation deployed March 24, and returned April 4. A second 80-person crew went April 4 and returned Saturday. Both groups were based east of the slide in Darrington.
