SWRT was created after unprecedented flooding in May 2010 exposed a need for water rescue equipment availability. The team maintains approximately 12 members plus equipment including a flat bottom boat, 2 motorized boats, 2 non-motorized self-bailer boats, and an enclosed trailer. They may be activated for local rescues or mutual aid. The WilCo Swift Water Task Force, has been credentialed through the state since 2021. This joint venture between WCSO, Brentwood Fire, and Franklin Fire improves water rescue across the county.
