Status: Currently in Discussion Phase
North Peace Search & Rescue is currently raising funding for a new SAR Hall. While we're very thankful to the city of Fort St. John for the use of their public works facility, we need somewhere to can store all of our equipment safety, make training nights more effective and increase response time.
- Heated bay(s) to park truck(s) and Incident Command trailer
- Training and meeting room
- Storage area for gear
- Overhead beams/anchors for rope rescue practices and hanging equipment to dry
Side-By-Side Transport (SAR3)
Status: Custom work being completed
In Fall of 2017 we completed the purchase of a Polaris Ranger Crew 900. The 6 seat side-by-side will allow us to deploy a search team into the field much faster. The unit has been equipped with tracks and can also be configured with wheels.
Lightbar, scene lighting and portable radios have been installed.
In Winter 2018 custom work is being done on the unit to add the ability to secure a stretcher inside of the cab (extended out the back into the storage area, which has an enclosure). This project will require custom work and an extra rollbar to be installed in the storage canopy at back of the unit for safety. This project will allow us to quick and safely transport a patient out of the bush while keeping them warm with the internal heater.
A 6 member team will be able to deploy to the field in the unit and when it's switched over to medical transport mode there will be room for a driver, medic and patient.
The project is expected to be completed in Winter/Spring of 2018.
