About Our Charity

Coquitlam SAR is a Volunteer Search and Rescue team based in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada.

Operating under the Provincial Emergency Program and tasked by local law enforcement and emergency personnel, we are responsible for inland water, wilderness and urban search and rescue in an area bounded by Indian Arm on the west, Pitt Lake on the east, Garibaldi Park to the north, and the Fraser River to the south. This primary area is over 1000km² and includes some of the most rugged and inaccessible terrain in the southwest region of the Province of British Columbia.

We also provide assistance to residents during natural disasters such as floods, forest fires, and earthquakes, and respond to requests for mutual aid from other SAR teams in the BC, and in Washington State to the south.

The team consists of 45 active members who conduct about 50 searches, over 60 training days and many community education appearances annually.
