PCSAR and Pincher Creek Emergency Services are forming a joint rope rescue team. It is hoped that by having a single team between the two organizations, that we will be able to maintain a level of training and involvement that will allow the joint team to respond to incidents in the mandate for either organization.
The PCSAR board has given approval in principle to the formation of joint team. They will consider a more detailed mandate and budget for the team as they are developed.
