It's All About Volunteers

The strength of NORTH SHORE SEARCH AND RESCUE relies totally on the commitment of its volunteers and is dependent upon assistance from businesses, organizations and citizens to support our fundraising efforts. No volunteer Search and Rescue teams in the Province of Ontario receives any regular funding from any level of Government, be it Municipal, Provincial or Federal.

North Shore Search and Rescue members continually build their knowledge and skills to deliver this vital service to the communities we serve. All members are required to undergo a criminal background check, and attend a minimum 40 hours of training annually.

All active searchers must hold current certification in First Aid, CPR and OSARVA (Ontario Search and Rescue Volunteer Association) Basic Level Search certification with mandatory annual recertification. Currently, our members train twice monthly with additional exercises as well as mock search and rescue scenarios.

Upon activation, searchers may be requested to respond with little or no advanced notice.
