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

Prince George SAR also responded to a false alarm this afternoon. While debriefing and discussing how easy it is to accidentally trigger the SOS feature our members actually triggered an SOS while the device was powered off. Pushing and holding the SOS button on the InReach while powered off caused it to turn on and start the alarm.

We were able to cancel the emergency right away but it really emphasized how easy it is. Please make sure you are protecting your satellite messengers from accidental activation.
