Clark County Dive Rescue Team (CCDRT) is joining Clark County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue (CCSOSAR). In recent weeks, both organizations’ boards have been working together to finalize the transition. Under this new arrangement, CCDRT will become the dive team for CCSOSAR. “This will give our team access to a vast and diverse knowledge base,” said Chastity Stern, operations manager for CCDRT. “We look forward to serving Clark County in a greater capacity than we’ve been able to in the past.” For the last 29 years, CCDRT has operated as its own privately funded nonprofit. It has worked with public safety agencies throughout Clark County and Washington state. This move is aimed at more closely aligning the agencies and streamlining operation, training, and response to incidents.
