North Peace Search and Rescue is looking for enthusiastic and dedicated people who enjoy the outdoors to join our team. We have the capability to conduct ground and inland water searches in the North Peace region and we also provide support to other regional and provincial teams. Our operational capabilities include ground search, rope rescue, swiftwater/flatwater/ice rescue, tracking and avalanche response.
If you have any questions, concerns or just want to see what we do, please come visit with us on a weekly practice night before you submit an application.
Joining our team is a serious decision and should not be taken lightly. Search and Rescue can be a rewarding endeavor, but it requires dedication and practice. Outdoor skills and medical training are an asset, but an enthusiastic willingness to learn is very important as well. Our team members have many opportunities to learn and practice skills every year.
To become a full member of NPSAR you must first become a Member In Training (MIT). MITs journeying toward full membership are required to attend a 75 hour Ground Search and Rescue (GSAR) course and provide a minimum of 25 hours of combined service to SAR activities (callouts, practices, fundraising) as a MIT. The journey from MIT to full membership usually takes around one year in NPSAR, dependent on the GSAR course training dates.
After completing the GSAR training course you must be voted in to become an active member of NPSAR and be added to the callout list.
Please discuss your desire to join the team with family and work as tasks and training will require some flexibility on their behalf.
Thank you for your interest.
