SAR Memorial unveiling at the BC Legislative Building


RCMSAR members and other search and rescue volunteers from around the province attended the unveiling of the British Columbia Search and Rescue Volunteer Memorial at the Legislative Buildings on March 2. The memorial honours volunteers who died in the line of duty, and serves as a permanent tribute to all those who serve. The names of two RCMSAR members – Angie Nemeth and Beatrice Sorensen – are inscribed on the memorial. The memorial is located in the BC Emergency Services Garden of Honour.

This was a joint project of RCMSAR, the BC Search and Rescue Association and PEP Air representing marine, ground, and air volunteer rescue. RCMSAR members raised thousands of dollars through a raffle and donations towards the memorial. We are very proud of this lasting tribute to the volunteers who help keep British Columbians safe.
