Since originally posted to the Blog, a question has arose about how the Shuswap Lifeboat Society interlaces with RCMSAR Station 106 Shuswap.
Everything operational – crews, vessels, missions = Station 106 Shuswap. Crew – volunteer recruitment, new crew trained to Canadian Coast Guard criteria, recurrent vessel operation and navigational aid assessments. Vessels – maintenance and upkeep. Missions – scheduling crew, and safely performing SAR missions.
The Society is the financial and administrative support for the Station – promotion, fundraising, financial records, and enacting policy sheets.
Society members must be members of Station 106. The Society is able to issue charitable tax receipts for donations. To serve on the SLS Board, a person does not need to be an active crew member. Any person who has an interest in the activities of RCMSAR Station 106 Shuswap, either as crew or with the Board, are always most welcome to join us.
Send us an email at the address found on the Home Page.
