South Fraser SAR volunteers come from all over the Metro Vancouver region. With “day jobs” ranging from emergency services to municipal government to nursing to construction, our volunteers bring a wealth of specialized experience to the society, acting as searchers first and non-profit support staff second. Members range in age from 19 years of age to over 70 and serve in one of many capacities. Not everyone is in the field, some help with finance, fundraising, governance and others.
We provide search and rescue services to close to a million people. To put it in context, that is over 19% of the population of British Columbia and 2.5% of the population of Canada! We provide service to Delta, Richmond, Surrey and White Rock however our members, trained to high provincial standards have been deployed throughout BC on larger incidents as mutual aid.
