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.  

Being prepared with the right gear is an important step - knowing how to use it is even better! ... See MoreSee Less

Prince George Search and Rescue

We are always happy to help our Search & Rescue family.Sunday evening NVSAR was requested to help with a hiker in medical distress on the trail into the Chinlac historical site on the Stuart River. 8 members responded, hiking in to provide first aid and set up shelter over night for the subject due to the incredible amount of blowdown. Prince George SAR was called in to provide a CDFL extraction in the morning, and the subject was accessed by helicopter and handed over to the BCAS. Great use of mutual aid!
As we were returning to the SAR hall, a second callout came for a distress call at Cluculz Lake. Busy day!

Everyone must be getting more BC AdventureSmart. It has been months since we have had a callout. However, all good things must end.

PGSAR was called out twice in just over four hours. Crews were stood down on route to the first call and are responding at first light to the second call.
