Prince George Search and Rescue

About UsJoin PG SAR

PGSAR will not be conducting an intake for the Fall of 2022. Interested individuals may submit an application, but no intake is planned until at least January of 2023.  

The Prince George Search and Rescue Society (PGSAR) is a registered non-profit organization operating in and around the Prince George region. PGSAR is manned solely by volunteers who respond 24/7, all year round, in all types of weather conditions. Members are unpaid professionals highly trained in wilderness skills and technical rescue.  

We are tasked by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Coroner Service of British Columbia, and British Columbia Ambulance Service (BCAS) in a variety of search and rescue functions. As members of a provincial team, we are sometimes asked to assist in other areas of the province as well. 

How we are activated

Prince George Search and Rescue is activated by emergency services. If this is an emergency, please contact 9-11 and they will activate our team as needed.  

Please note there is no cost for search and rescue! You do not need to wait 24 hours to report someone as missing. The sooner they are reported, the sooner we can help! 

For non-emergency contact, please see the contact tab at the top of the webpage.

It was also the training day for our Class D team, aka long line rescue team - 12 members of the team completed their yearly training requirements. These amazing volunteers put in close to 92 hrs of time. Thank you for your dedication. #volunteersrock #searchandrescue #bcsara ... See MoreSee Less
