In 2017 Campbell River Search & Rescue was able to purchase two new trucks and a rescue box with funds received from the Province and BCSARA. This funding also provided for other purchases like personal protective equipment and dollars for training. Without this funding, our group would have spent hours writing applications for grant money and fundraising at the local level. This money has allowed us to focus on training our members and responding to calls. We look forward to consistent funding through the Alternative Support Model and working with the Province of BC.
