Saskatoon Search and Rescue (SSAR) is a ground search and rescue team made up of dedicated volunteers who desire to help and assist others in need in our community by giving their time for training, search missions, preventative information and public awareness. They are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
SSAR’s Mission: To locate lost or missing persons and provide support to our community in non-search emergencies under the direction of Saskatoon Emergency Measures Organization, Saskatoon Police Service, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or other agency of jurisdiction.
SSAR’s Vision: We will be an organization of highly skilled search and rescue professionals capable of providing an effective response to whatever role we are tasked to do by the appropriate agency of jurisdiction. We also strive to prevent search-related emergencies through education and community outreach.
Project Lifesaver Saskatoon: In 2018 Saskatoon SAR launched Project Lifesaver. The goal of Project Lifesaver is to protect people who are at risk to wander (those with Alzheimer's, dementia, autism, Down Syndrome or other cognitive disorders). To learn more, go to www.projectlifesaversaskatoon.org
