New Year's Eve Present... Rescued children home safe!
Vernon Search & Rescue ground search teams were happy to help track, locate and rescue two young boys in the Westside community. The two brothers, aged 6 and 8 had walked into the first to find marshmallow sticks, when they got lost after wandering after a deer. The frigid -18 celcius temperatures contributed to the difficulty and the urgency of the search.

Dec 06, 2017

Vernon Search & Rescue was called to assist the BC ambulance service with a high-angle rope Rescue at a motor vehicle accident East of Cherryville.

Arriving on scene they assessed the situation, finding a vehicle roughly 20m down a very steep Bank, with the female subject roughly 50m further down the bank below the vehicle.

Vernon Search and Rescue teams set up and deployed a rope system, and with help from the RCMP and Lumby fire department members hoisted the subject up the steep slope to the safety of the roadway.
