By joining us, you will be “Saving Lives on the Water”.
Marine rescue volunteerism pre-dates Confederation. In Canada, volunteers currently respond to 25% of all marine search & rescues.
Royal Canadian Marine Search & Rescue has almost 1000 volunteers performing this valuable public safety role across 31 Stations in B.C.
Proudly continuing a 150 year tradition of volunteer lifeboats on our British Columbia waters, Shuswap volunteers readily give of their personal time to train, standby for page outs, promote water and boating safety, and crew response vessels for search and rescues (SAR), including those medical emergencies on the Shuswap Lake system.
As medical incidents form 3/4’s of responses, Station 106 Shuswap maintains 2 vessels, response ready 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
