Dion Arnouse, a proud member of the Secwepemc Nation (Shuswap territory) in Southern BC will be working closely with numerous indigenous communities, our SAR Prevention Director-at-Large, Sandra Riches, along with BC SAR volunteers and our partners at EMBC.

The main objectives of this project, running from April 1, 2019 – March 31, 2020 are:

  • To reduce the frequency, duration and severity of Search and Rescue (SAR) incidents within Indigenous Communities by ensuring SAR prevention programs and materials are culturally appropriate.
  • Increase SAR prevention programming in Indigenous communities by ensuring opportunities are communicated effectively and appropriately.
