WE ARE #CRSAR

Search and Rescue works because of a dedicated group of volunteers.   This dedicated group of volunteers come from all walks of life including mechanics, postal workers, accountants, outdoor guides, doctors, marketers, construction workers and more.   Get to know who we are as an organization and find out what makes us tick and what we do outside of Search and Rescue.

Meet Byron Andres

When did you join CR search and rescue?

I joined SAR in 2015

Why did you join search and rescue?

I joined because I wanted to contribute to my community. I have skills and willingness to learn that could benefit others. I also learned a long time ago that I am nourished by belonging to a team. Its healthy for me.

What’s been the most rewarding part of being apart of search and rescue?

For sure, every search or rescue that ends well, is super rewarding. Even the ones that end badly but are conclusive and are handled respectfully and professionally. I have also been graciously rewarded by the welcome I get from the team.

What do you do outside of search and rescue?

I am a biologist and I work for the DFO in the Federal Government.

 

For those interested in joining Campbell River Search and Rescue you can fill out an “membership application form“.  We will be hosting an open house October 11th at 7:00pm at the SAR hall as well.
