Cliff rescue training on Okanagan Lake

Cliff rescue training on Okanagan Lake

Jan 01, 2017

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.

Car Jammers Donation

Special thanks to the Cam Jammers Car Club in Armstrong, who donated the funds for VSAR to purchase "CJ" our training dummy. Today, CJ visited the Cam Jammers at the Rods 'n Rails car show, and had a great time with the guys... hanging' out, keeping cool (he never even broke a sweat), and even managed to catch the eye of a blond mannequin who was also there to check out all the classic vehicles (unfortunately she wouldn't talk to him).

A Thank You from a Family...

A Thank You from a Family...

Today, the family of the father and son saved on Friday came by the SAR Hall to deliver a basket full of thanks... along with hand-made cards from the kids. It was a very heart-filled gesture, appreciated by the entire team, and one of the many special reasons the Vernon Search and Rescue team does what it does!
