Search and Rescue

There are 80 Land Search and Rescue groups in B.C. and last year they responded to 1,600 calls. In an effort to increase public education and safety awareness, Sunshine Coast Search and Rescue is hosting the Adventure Smart team at its hall located at 1975 Field Road, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2.

Adventure Smart will teach a free workshop on how to present various education programs to age-appropriate audiences ranging from six to 90 years old. They will give links to the various presentations available as well as free whistles, colouring books, emergency shelters, and trip planning tools.
