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 $5.5 million annually in hours and infrastructure support – support of regional police, fire, emergency response, security, first aid – functions throughout the entire province, all provided by volunteers.

Our members are dedicated and skilled, but we need your help! Please support our search and rescue efforts.

Making a gift to Search and Rescue Alberta is a direct and meaningful way to help someone who may be lost or injured. A financial gift will allow us to continue to provide these critical services to Albertans.
