Local search and rescue looking for volunteers


North Peace Search and Rescue is looking for capable volunteers and will be holding an open house for interested residents.

The open house will be taking place Wednesday, April 20 at 7 p.m. at the Fort St. John Public Yards meeting room, located at 10303 Cree Road, (Cree at 103 street, industrial estate, south of the Alaska Highway, west of 100 St). This location is also where the team meets for training on the first and third Wednesday of every month.

NPSAR volunteers provide support during ground search and rescue activities within northeast B.C.

All members will receive necessary training to carry out ground search and rescue missions, as well as training in other disciplines, such as rope rescues, tracking and ice rescues.

NPSAR also provides mutual aid support to other local search and rescue groups when requested.
