Volunteers with the Central Cariboo Search and Rescue (CCSAR) Unit provideassistance to the RCMP and BC Ambulance Services to:
Our operations are based in Williams Lake.
Auto extrication is the removal of trapped or injured persons from a vehicle. Volunteers are equipped for an emergency response with specialized equipment to quickly and safely remove trapped accident victims.
Land search and rescue members search for missing persons on land and waterin both urban and rural areas. We may need to search for missing children, hunters, hikers, snowmobilers or victims of crime. Searchers often work in remote, rugged areas with difficult access.
Volunteers communicate between the search and rescue scene and the command centre, usually in Williams Lake. This is accomplished through our network of radios and repeaters or through radio links provided by cooperating agencies.
Volunteers act as air spotters, navigators, or pilots in private or commercial airplanes or helicopters to search for missing or overdue aircraft or lost persons. Volunteers assist members of the Provincial Emergency Program - Air Division, the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association or Department of National Defense - 442 Squadron from Comox in these searches.
