About Prince George SAR
Who we are
Prince George Search and Rescue is responsible for searching for lost individuals, evacuating injured persons, and assisting in other emergencies in the Prince George area. We also respond to Mutual Aid calls from around the province for large scale, long-running searches that require more resources.
Most requests from the RCMP are to look for lost or overdue people, but we are sometimes also asked to assist them with evidence searches. The British Columbia Ambulance Service requests our service to assist with medical evacuations that are beyond their travel capabilities. The Coroners Service of British Columbia calls on PGSAR to assist them with the recovery of deceased individuals who are difficult to get to.
There are 80 Search and Rescue (SAR) groups in British Columbia. They are maintained and coordinated by Emergency Management BC (EMBC). It does this as part of its overall responsibility for emergency preparedness and planning for disasters, floods, earthquakes etc.
