Mission Statement

Ground Search and Rescue (GSAR) team members: 1) are dedicated volunteers who must possess the skills necessary to perform SAR related tasks with a high degree of proficiency; 2) must act professionally and follow a code of conduct which relies heavily on trust, integrity and teamwork; and 3) must be able to follow directions, work with limited supervision, have strong communication skills, be able to assess risk and complete tasks without endangering themselves or others.

In addition to ground search and rescue duties, SSI SAR’s skills and experience include the following:

• High Angle Ropes Rescue & Recovery
• Tracking
• Perimeter Security
• Evidence Searches
• Emergency Evacuation – Planning & Procedure
• Traffic and Parking Co-ordination
• Mutual Aid to other SAR groups

Whatever its activities may be on any given day, it is Salt Spring SAR’s privilege and primary goal to serve the citizens of the community.

Description

Incorporated in 1995, Salt Spring Island’s Search and Rescue Society is a volunteer, non-profit organization responsible for search and rescue activities throughout all the Southern Gulf Islands.

At the behest of the RCMP, the BC Ambulance Service or Coroner’s Service, the CRD and the Ministry of Defense, the men and women of SSI SAR are trained to mobilize quickly and conduct whatever type of search or recovery the prevailing circumstances may call for.
