Practice and application is an integral part of our training roster. Our training focuses on the techniques we will be using in the field on actual tasks.

A solid platform of established practices that get refined through repetition and member input, as well industry established practices. A large part of a member's initial training is done in house, by experienced searcher and instructors. Some helped shape the Search and Rescue manual in the province of British Columbia and are also provincial instructors.

There's nothing like an emergency vehicle and a team of orange-clad guys in helmets to draw attention in a campground. Yesterday evening it was our rope-training exercise at the cliffs of Ellison Park in Vernon which drew onlookers.

We'd like to thank the interested campers who respectfully stayed a safe distance back from the cliff to watch during the beautiful sunset.

Remember, always use proper safety and climbing gear (and climb with trained, qualified and knowledgeable people) when enjoying the outdoors.
