RCM•SAR Station 1 West Vancouver is one of the strongest stations on the coast with 40 volunteers providing marine search and rescue services 24/7. For those accepted we provide a training program that is competency based and requires demonstration of both technical knowledge and practical experience with accredited certifications. In return we expect a significant time commitment for several years.

Potential members must live within 15 minutes of our Horseshoe Bay station and have the motivation, ability and dedication to save lives at sea.   

We are recruiting now for a fall and possibly spring training.
