In 1971, a few visionary men saw a need for a specialized rescue team in Washoe County. Through much hard work and years of training and organization, the Hasty Team was formed.
The Hasty Team is responsible for technical rescues that require the greatest level of skill, expertise and special equipment. Rescue ability includes aircraft accidents/incidents, swift-water and open-water rescue, dive rescue and recovery, confined space rescue, mine rescue, high and low angle rescue (mountain and structure) and avalanche rescue. Also included in this group are our search dogs and trainers and Technical Mantrackers. See the "Hasty Team Capabilities" link below for more information on what we do.
Because of the levels of difficulty and the amount of continued training required for each discipline, many members of the Hasty Team limit their activity to just one or two of the rescue applications mentioned. The Hasty Team is a very active, highly trained and highly motivated volunteer group.
