Our Current Mission – Establishing A New Rescue Base

Station 106 Shuswap continues to move forward with building a facility to house and protect our rescue vessels – a floating Rescue Base.

The facility will contain a crew ready room where responding volunteers can gear up and prepare for missions embarked upon.

The 2nd floor above the rescue vessels …

– has dedicated classroom floorspace, both for Station 106’s internal training use, as well as our plan in the future to provide Boating Safety education and awareness courses.

– will contain consoles for radar and navigation training in a virtual setting, which will reduce the use and expense of vessels being used on the water.

– will be useful also for holding meetings, and community accessible, when and as available.

Thanks to a grant from the Shuswap Community Foundation, the design phase and engineered plans are completed. The Society is now discussing with community partners how best to structure construction financing.
