In addition to Auto Ex and Land SAR the team is also capable of assisting the RCMP in lake, river and other water rescues when called up.
With the use of a small inflatable boat equipped with a 25 hp motor searches have been conducted on local and district lakes. Members operating the boat have the Boat Operators Certificate.
A team is also certified to operate in swift water.
Extensive training with designed gear in and around swift flowing waters is ongoing during the summer months.
Other team members are certified to respond to flat ice call outs which also requires special training.
The SAR team has been deployed to assist Emergency Services during Spring flooding as well.
As the water environment is varied and hazardous all teams put their own safety first and perform these functions on a volunteer basis.
