There When Help Is Needed

North Peace Search and Rescue (NPSAR) consists of dedicated professional volunteers who provide search and rescue services to Fort St. John and surrounding area. We also promote outdoor knowledge and safety for all recreationists in the outdoors.

Our operational area covers from Sikanni Chief River in the North to the Peace River in the South. We also provide mutual assistance to the other SAR teams when needed.

All of our members follow a code of conduct that relies heavily on trust, integrity and teamwork.
