Sparwood Search and Rescue will be holding our Third annual Open House and Barbeque on Friday September 13, 2013 from 4pm until 8pm, at the Search and Rescue building at 705 Douglas Fir Road.

We would like to invite everyone to come learn about what Search and Rescue does, and meet the dedicated people who are on call 24/7 to help keep people in BC safe. We will have all our vehicles and equipment on display, demonstrations of rescue techniques, activities for kids and information on backcountry safety.  There will be hot food on the grill and plenty of cold beverages!

Sparwood SAR is actively recruiting new volunteers, and not only in emergency response roles: we're also looking for people who are willing to help with administration, maintenance, fundraising and many other behind-the-scenes jobs that SAR can't function without. The open house is a great time to come down and see how you can help!
