Local SAR team receives new vehicle

Keremeos SAR thrilled with donation of vehicle from Cranbrook

On October 20, three members of Keremeos Search And Rescue (KSAR) travelled to Cranbrook to pick up a new truck.

KSAR reformed and has been active for three  years.

Members of KSAR have advanced tracking capabilities as well as having tracking instructors. The group is working on a rope team.

KSAR responds to mutual aid call-outs with Penticton, Oliver-Osoyoos and Princeton search and rescue (SAR)teams and also serve the South Okanagan and further if needed.

KSAR is currently recruiting for new members. If you are adventurous, like the outdoors and are a good team player,  you might be a good fit for the group.

Outdoor training and experience is not neccesary; we will train.

 

Please call 250-499-1800 for more info and applications.
