Search and Rescue

Vancouver’s north shore mountains continuously lure people. Not all outdoor ventures turn out well. North Shore Rescue (NSR), a community-based search and rescue team, provides life-saving services to the public, 24/7. Since 1965 they have conducted over a thousand search and rescue operations in the mountains – one of four involves injury or death. NSR has led in the development of the Helicopter Flight Rescue System, pictured. NSR members, slung from helicopters, assist and evacuate stranded or injured people from technical terrain.
