For as busy as Victoria Day weekend can be, the Kent-Harrison Search and Rescue volunteers had a quiet few days.
According to Neil Brewer, KHSAR manager, there was only one Search and Rescue call, which was called off while volunteers were en route.
KHSAR members were on site at the Harrison Lake boat launch to hand out safety information on Friday (May 21) and Saturday (May 22). This safety awareness campaign comes off the heels of three years of steadily increasing calls for people needing help on lakes, in parks and on forest service roads across the Fraser Valley.
RCMP and regional Search and Rescue teams along with AdventureSmart remind the public to plan before leaving for the great outdoors, carry the proper equipment and to know and stay within the limits of your skills.
There is no charge for search and rescue calls. In case of emergencies, dial 911.
