In 2017, Alberta’s waterways experienced over 20 drowning fatalities of which 5 occurred within the RMWB. The provincial trend of water related searches is consistent with our agency, as a significant number of annual calls occur in our rivers and lakes. This specific watercraft will provide Search and Rescue with the capability to assist in shallow water residential evacuations, underwater sonar searches, night searches, and increases the effectiveness of our swift-water rescue team.
As a registered charity, all donations to Fort McMurray Search and Rescue are tax deductible and a tax receipt will be provided.
