Volunteers Saving Lives on the Water
Anytime of the day or night, and in every kind of weather, the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Volunteers (RCM-SAR) are available when lives may be at risk. When the call goes out, the boat crew are there to search and give whatever kind of aid is needed.
Jason King, Station Leader of RCM-SAR 1 in West Vancouver, will introduce you to the work of this unit. The commitment of the volunteers is extraordinary to train and provide an amazing service to the public. Find out more of their history, their place in the Search and Rescue System, and what they do. They are not publicly funded like the Canadian Coastguard but they perform a remarkable role when needed.
There have been incredible stories and amazing rescues over the years. They are ready and willing when things go wrong. Join us to learn and understand more about how volunteers like this support us all when help is needed on the water.
Make sure you put Monday October 18 @ 7.30 p.m. in your diary and join us via the GoToMeeting link below.
