A grant from Williams Lake Community Forests has funded training and new tools and equipment for Central Cariboo Search and Rescue (“CCSAR”). This fund helped replace a variety of rescue equipment that was stolen during a vehicle theft in 2022. The equipment included stretchers, rescue rope and harnesses, and life jackets. Two members of CCSAR also had the opportunity to obtain their certification in Technical Rope Rescue, a crucial component of CCSAR’s training for steep-slope rescues. Together, these investments will allow CCSAR to continue its crucial search and rescue and motor vehicle rescue operations.
