The Role of the Whistler Search and Rescue Team
WSAR is a volunteer search and rescue team. Its members are from all walks of life and share a common interest in providing an important life-saving service to the public, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
The role of WSAR team members includes assisting the following agencies
• Police in the search and rescue of missing persons and in evidence searches
• BC Ambulance Service in the rescue of injured persons
• Provincial Coroner’s Service in body recovery operations
• Municipal agencies in search, rescue, communications, and other roles during civil emergencies
Although we are volunteers, the lifesaving service provided by the members of the Whistler Search and Rescue Team requires that they maintain the standards of unpaid professionals in assisting municipal and provincial agencies.
