From the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office: Rescue from Mt. Pilchuck

On Tuesday, June 6th, Search and Rescue volunteers from Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue rescued a woman from the West side of Mt. Pilchuck. She had slipped and fallen in on snow at 4,800 feet, injuring her leg. She was well-equipped and attempted to rescue herself, but wasn’t able to safely make it down the trail due to the injury.

She was hoisted out by SnoHAWK10, transported to Taylor’s Landing, and then via private vehicle for medical treatment.

The SnoHAWK10 is a Bell Helicopter UH-1H which has underwent massive upgrades in 2011, including:

  • T53-L-703 engine with AFS Barrier Air Filter
  • 212 tail rotor system, gearboxes and control tubes
  • BLR Strakes and Fast Fin
  • Dual Garmin G500H NVG Nav Panels and systems
  • 212 main transmission support case
  • UH606 Cargo Hook with digital weighing system and read-out
  • New 250 gallon FAST Water Bucket system with back-up
  • New aircraft avionics and audio panels
  • Passenger Shoulder Harness system
  • All major components overhauled to zero-time or replaced

Remember: If you are in doubt, turn around and head down. If you don’t leave the house with a partner, always check in with a buddy before heading out on your own.
