Welcome New and Prospective Members!

We're very glad you want to be part of Pincher Creek Search and Rescue.

This page provides our package of information for people who want to or have just joined Search and Rescue in the Pincher Creek area.

A paper copy of this information can be found in the personnel binder which is at the regular meetings. You can print out copies for yourself or new packages for others from the individual documents.

Whether you've already decided to join, or just want to check us out, please come out to our next regular training night. These are the first Tuesday of every month at 19:00 (7pm) at the Pincher Creek fire hall.

The first thing you may encounter is our recruitment brochure. You can print it out from this PDF link.

[edit] Training for New Members

New members of Pincher SAR are expected to meet the provincial requirements of:

  • ICS 100 -- a 3-hour online course that introduces how people are organized during an "incident"
  • SAR Basics -- a 40-hour course, held in Pincher Creek in the fall and Lethbridge in the spring
  • Standard First Aid or higher -- you can get this anywhere you want. Pincher SAR will pay up to $150 of the course fee of those that complete it. Every few years Pincher SAR offers the more advanced Wilderness First Aid

Members of our sister organization, the Community Response Group, need not meet all of these requirements. We however encourage them to take the training anyway as it means you can be deployed in more circumstances.
