Elkford Search & Rescue

Elkford Search and Rescue is a volunteer organization based in Elkford, British Columbia and serving the upper Elk Valley and Fording River areas of southeastern BC.  We are dedicated to providing public safety services to all residents and guests, right from the local towns and rural areas to the most remote regions of the backcountry.  These services include ground, inland water, and rugged terrain searches along with backcountry and avalanche rescues.  Preventative SAR measures such as awareness programs and education are a key focus as well.  We also operate in support of local emergency management through command centre setup, communications support and organized trained manpower.  Mutual aid is provided to other SAR teams on request.

We currently operate out of the main fire hall in Elkford, where our equipment is stored.  Regular meetings and training sessions are held.  Anyone interested in learning more or joining the team is welcome to attend, as are visiting members of other teams.

Search and Rescue Emergencies are handled through the RCMP @ 911
