Search and Rescue (SAR) Games, Media Day and Trade Show
UFV will be assisting our partners at Canada Education Park, including the RCMP and JIBC to host the SAR Games, Media Day and Trade Show on the grounds of the Chilliwack campus. This is the exciting kick-off for the annual SARscene event and conference..
What are the SARscene Games?
The SARscene Games is a one-day event that is intended to showcase search and rescue (SAR) and to promote the sharing of skills in a friendly yet competitive environment. As a land-based event, the focus is on the ground and inland water search and rescue environment, but knowledge and techniques practiced by air and maritime SAR professionals may also be incorporated. Held each year in conjunction with the annual SARscene event, the Games are organized jointly by the National Search and Rescue Secretariat and its co-host. This year, the event's co-host is the British Columbia Search and Rescue Association (BCSARA). The Games typically bring together participants from across Canada, and often internationally. The judges selected to design and evaluate the Games each year also represent a diverse cross-section of the search and rescue community, and have included search and rescue volunteers, police, military SAR technicians, park wardens, paramedics, firefighters, Coast Guard personnel, and government and industry SAR specialists.
