Ya know, quite a few of those people are involved in the Washington Off Road Recovery network (WORN) and Oregon Offroad Recovery. Except instead of hiking out and performing first aid and evac procedures, these people drive uhhhh jeeps and lifted trucks and own lots and lots of winches. Basically if you get yourself stuck on a forest road in either state for whatever reason, make a call/post to them and they will try to bail you out in addition to whoever the local sheriff/forest service operator is.
