What We Do
SAR Alberta is the provincial association for volunteer search and rescue within the province. Its mission is to assist search and rescue teams in their efforts to provide a superior and dedicated level of service to the people of Alberta.
We provide over $2.5 million annually in infrastructure support – support of regional police, fire, emergency response, security, first aid – functions throughout the entire province, all provided by volunteers.
SAR Alberta is a 100% volunteer organized and run non-profit organization.
We have more than 1,240 volunteer members in 6 regions and 38 teams, who are responsible for ground and inland searches under the jurisdiction of the police within all regions in Alberta.Area of Operations
