Prince George Search and Rescue

About UsJoin PG SAR

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.

Prince George Search and Rescue

‪Do you know what this is? ‬

‪Recently it was a hikers “home away from home” aka her shelter for 2 days while waiting for Cowichan Search & Rescue to locate her. ‬

‪She applied, what we call, the S.T.O.P. acronym: Stop, Think, Observe, Plan, then act. ‬

The hiker did have a pack with some essentials in it, including an emergency shelter and extra clothing. It was the waving of the emergency shelter that helped SAR spot her.
