Presidents Report

Due to provincial requirements Pincher Creek Search and Rescue has been divided into two groups, Pincher Creek Search and Rescue and Community Response Group. This is the new platform on which to rebuild our volunteer base. We have 22 years of organized Search and Rescue in our community and we would like to thank all the volunteers for their dedicated service. Pincher Creek Search and Rescue has had great support from the Town and Municipality as well as Shell because of this support we should be able to run some very good courses this year such as Wilderness First Aid, Avalanche etc.

Financial Report

Brett noted that we have some strong reserves for extraordinary equipment expenses should something break down or require replacement. Rose is to check vehicle registration due dates and process renewals.
