Respond to Disasters

Empact Northwest is the only internationally deployable nonprofit USAR team in the United States.  We've responded to dozens of disasters providing rescue, medical, and logistical support to thousands.


About Us

Founded in 2010, Empact Northwest is a non-profit, non-governmental entity providing rescue, medical, and logistical support to those affected by disaster worldwide; preparedness support to communities in need; and professional rescue training.

Our mission is accomplished primarily using a team of dedicated volunteers, backed by a small but committed staff.  Empact volunteers are made up of people from all walks of life, but the one common thread between them is a commitment to their community and commitment to humanity.  Our volunteers log countless hours studying, training, fundraising, and responding to disasters.
