Clubs, businesses invited to ‘Unity of Effort’ in August

An event to honor local first responders, the annual “Unity of Effort” returns to Sequim on Saturday, Aug. 10.

Security Services Northwest hosts the event from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the company headquarters, 250 Center Park Way.

A free, family-friendly event open to the public, “Unity of Effort” features a variety of federal, state and local civilian businesses and organizations, law enforcement, emergency medical, search and rescue and military units.

Businesses and clubs are welcome to participate, for free, with a display/informational booth. For more information, contact SSNW Vice President Jennifer Scott at 800-859-3463 or

Popular events such as the bucket brigade competition, straw pile toy find and bounce house for children, and live music (Stardust Big Band and Hairstorm, a 1980s tribute band) all return for the 2019 event. Also featured are a number of displays, vendor booths and show-and-tell exhibits. Fort Discovery Corporation sponsors a target shooting contest using a “virtual” shooting simulator.

A field next to the SSNW Headquarters has again been secured for a helicopter landing zone. Medical airlift helicopters are expected, and possibly a U.S. Navy helicopter.

Security Services Northwest, Inc., provides armed and unarmed security services, alarm installation and monitoring, video security installation and remote monitoring, telephone answering and dispatch services and maritime security in Washington, Alaska, Oregon and California.
