What we do

Vernon Search and Rescue

We are involved in but not limited to: ground searches, water searches, rescues, recoveries for the Coroner’s Services, RCMP evidence searches and civil emergencies the likes of fire or flooding evacuations.

We search in all types of weather conditions, every day of the year. During the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter, in the wind, rain, fog and snow.

At Vernon SAR we are very active in training at varying disciplines that enhance our skills so we are prepared and safe to operate in the challenging environment that surrounds us here in the North Okanagan. We carry out regular training, among others, at Okanagan Lake, Mabel Lake, Shuswap River and the various other terrains.
