2017 Washington State Search and Rescue Conference

Welcome to the official website for the 2017 Washington State Search and Rescue Conference

Ferry County Search and Rescue is hosting the State SAR Conference at the Ferry County Fairgrounds located just east of the town of Republic.

Where is Ferry County?

Located in the northeastern corner of Washington State, Ferry County shares its northern boundary with British Columbia, Canada and its eastern boundary with the Columbia River. The south half of the county falls within the boundaries of the Colville Confederated Tribes and the north half is largely occupied by the Colville National Forest. WA State Highway 20 runs east and west through the County and Highway 21 runs north and south. Check back soon to view a map.

The Ferry County Fairgrounds, site of the 2017 WASAR Conference, is three miles east of the town of Republic. RV sites and camping are available. Check back soon to view a map of the Fairgrounds.
