Kamloops Search and Rescue (KSAR) is a registered society and operates as a volunteer, community-based, search and rescue organization with a core of some 30 longstanding members. Members span all ages and walks of life, but all have a common interest in providing an important life saving service to the public, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

KSAR takes pride in offering a vital community service, and in addition to its search and rescue activities, regularly participates in a number of community events. KSAR members also present public information and education programs throughout the year to schools, youth groups and others.
