A Rescue Base Committee was formed and began brainstorming what it felt a Rescue Base should contain and  how it should be built, and what the facility could offer to both Station 106  and the surrounding communities as well.

Two mooring bays, sufficient storage, a heated ready room, training space,  washroom, and donor recognition was just the beginning – at the end, the Wish List of Wants was 3 pages long.


Of significance, the Committee members strongly recommended to the Society the facility’s superstructure be framed with steel and aluminum, for sustainability, as overall it provides a lighter weight to higher strength ratio, to afford stronger rigidity and superior durability over wood.
