We respond to Marine Emergencies whenever called upon, 24/7 and 365 days a year.
We train our recruits and crew in all aspects of safe boating and SAR procedures, as well we encourage crew members to attend specialized off-island training. Our crews train weekly throughout the year, focusing on personal safety and crew safety. We maintain our vessel in top mission ready state at all times.
We promote boating safety and education through on-going FREE Boat Safety Checks for the boating community and through our presence at various community events, such as the Polar Bear Swim, the Saturna Lamb Roast and the Hope Bay Boat Days.
We provide boat safety and marine rescue training to staff at local marinas.
We sponsor the "Kids Don't Float" program which provides free(loaner) life jackets for children.
