Assign To

Training Committee : Alieza Cyr


Find out what training opportunities may be available for our members from other organizations. This is not asking them to run a course for us, but asking them if they are already planning a training event if we can participate by sending a few members.

Sometimes participation would be free. Other times there would be a charge. In which case the Training Committee would have to decide whether PCSAR should cover all, part, or none of the fee.

Organizations that in the past have provided training include:

  • Pincher Creek Emergency Services - first aid/CPR, Emergency Medical Responder (EMR), some joint exercises and practices
  • Pincher Creek Community Emergency Management Agency - H2S Alive
  • Castle Mountain Resort - avalanche courses
  • Shell Canada - H2S Alive
  • Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) - ICS 100 online
  • neighbouring SAR groups
    • Lethbridge SAR - because they're so close, we should be aware of their training each month
    • Crowsnest Pass SAR - because they're so close, we should be aware of their training each month
    • Lethbridge Canadian Search Dog Association - sometimes they have training events that aren't about dogs
    • Waterton Lakes National Park - public safety - sometimes have training events that they could open up to our members
    • Sparwood SAR - work with us regularly on snowmobile searches and sometimes offer access to their training events
  • major provincial SAR courses, exercises, and conferences
    • these events are funded or initiated by the Office of the Fire Commissioners Office or SAR Alberta, so these organizations will have a list of these events and who is organizing them
    • the events themselves are usually organized by a particular SAR group somewhere in the province, so we have to contact that SAR group to get the details
    • There's a mailing list that is sometime used to publicize these events. See SARA Training Coordinators emailing list
    • Some SAR groups put their training events on an online calendar called ITM (see)
