Helping Save Lives on the Water
Where Your Money Goes
It costs over three million dollars to provide marine search and rescue and boating safety services every year in 33 community-based stations throughout B.C. Giving our volunteer rescue crew members everything they need and deserve is costly but can make all the difference to those in peril on the water.
Thanks to the incredible support of people like you, our volunteers answered calls at all hours of the day and night to complete 1,147 missions in the last two years. During those taskings, 813 people were assisted and $34,664,061 in property was protected.
Even more importantly, 222 lives were saved. Between 2017 and 2018, 222 people went home to their loved ones because our volunteers were ready to answer the call. Your donation today will help train and equip our volunteer crews so they’re ready to take that next call and continue saving lives on the water.
