We are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week year round. But in a emergency Search and Rescue can only be activated by the RCMP or RNC. In the event or a emergency please contact 911 or your local emergency services number. The police will assess the situation and dispatch Search and Rescue if required with the necessary resources. We hope this helps clear up some misconceptions and as always you best chance of not needing our help is to get informed, take the essentials and trip plan.
