SAR groups develop a selection of pre-plans relevant to SAR operations they are most frequently involved in. This provides SAR with essential background information, operational guidelines, and technical data required to plan and conduct similar SAR responses in the future. This can save valuable time. Particularly in the planning stage of a response. Saturday was a beautiful day for a team hike to a local attraction as part of pre-planning and teambuilding. 😅☀️ #savonacaves (DG) ...

KSAR's Parker and Carole were invited to present to Grade 5 of Our Lady of Perpetual Help School in Kamloops. They talked about what Kamloops Search and Rescue does, how dogs use their nose to find things, and what kind of equipment a K9 Handler would carry in their bag for their K9 partner. The children were awesome, had lots of questions and some top tips for training dogs. They were also experts at feeding Parker treats.🐾
Thanks for the invite OLPH grade 5! (CC/DG)

During a wildfire training exercise Tuesday afternoon, Summit Helicopters observed a body in the South Thompson River. A small group of KSAR swift water technicians were promptly dispatched for recovery.
The deceased has been identified as Kyle Ferg, a 32-year-old Kamloops man, who was the subject of our search on December 1, 2023. KSAR, along with mutual aid teams, conducted thorough searches of Mission Flats, the beaches along the river, and McArthur Island, where his cell phone was discovered. This discovery, though sombre, brings a measure of closure to those members who tirelessly searched for him. Our mission always aims to bring individuals back to their families, even in the most difficult circumstances, to allow them to find peace.
Our sincere condolences go out to Kyle's family and friends.(DG)

Members of KSAR spent their Saturday in Lac Le Jeune actively learning and practicing their tracking skills under the guidance of Advanced Tracker and Tracker Instructor Dwaine Brooke. Tracking is a vital part of Search and Rescue and having even the basic knowledge of these skills is vital for our volunteers.
There are many types of 'sign'. There’s bent grass, and things we call ‘transference’ where if you have some dirt or gravel on your shoes that will fall off as you walk and be out of place on the ground. We’ve had several successes with Kamloops Search and Rescue where we have been able to find a missing person by using pretty advanced tracking skills. The members in attendance thank Dwaine and Justin for their efforts and attention to help progress the skills of the team (JM,DG)
