There is no cost to the individual to activate search and rescue services in BC.
You do not have to wait 24 hours to report someone lost. The faster the person is reported missing the easier it will be to find them.
One of the ways we raise funds for our team is assisting with local and regional events. If you have a event and would like assistance with logistics, communication, medical or technical needs please use the form below.
