Station 106 Shuswap continues to move forward with building a facility to house and protect our rescue vessels – a floating Rescue Base.
The boathouse contains 2 bays to moor our two Rescue Vessels with a heated and fully equipped Ready Room for the responding volunteer crews to gear up quickly, safely, and prepare for missions.
This Ready Room will also permit meeting space for the crews, and can be used for basic training, such as virtual radar and navigation training, without incurring the greater expense of using a vessel on water.
Thanks to significant grant funding from the Shuswap Community Foundation, the design phase and engineered plans are completed.
The Society is now discussing with our community partners how best to setup the remaining financing package, to begin construction as quickly as possible.
