Representatives from the British Columbia Search and Rescue Association and Emergency Management British Columbia met on December 19th to further discuss the alternative funding model proposal presented to the Minister of Justice.  Clarification of the model and of issues faced by the Ground SAR volunteer community led to discussion on the steps for consideration to move the model ahead within government.  The focus remains on a more sustainable funding model that would potentially reduce the administrative requirements, to better support the volunteers that respond to Search and Rescue incidents throughout the province.
